Poison registration

There is no requirement to register as a seller of certain poisons. Aberdeen City Council has no legal duties under the Poison Act 1972 or the Control of Poisons and Explosives Precursors Regulations 2015.

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.
