Poisons Registration

Poison warning sign

Amendments have been made to the Poisons Act 1972.

From 26th May 2015 Aberdeen City Council will no longer have any legal duty under the Act.

There will be no requirement to register as a seller of certain poisons.

Existing names will remain on List Of Persons Entitled To Sell Non-Medicinal Poisons Included In Part 2 Of The Poisons List until 26th May 2015 without the need for renewal or payment of a fee.

It is suggested traders wishing to sell Non-Medicinal Poisons Included In Part 2 Of The Poisons List should take independent legal advice on the requirements of the amended Poisons Act 1972 and the Control of Poisons and Explosives Precursors Regulations 2015 to ensure compliance.
