Details on how to obtain a poisons licence from Gov.UK.

Changes to the Poisons Act 1972 following the Deregulation Act 2015.

As from the 26 May 2015, retailers who wish to sell Part 2 poisons will no longer be required to register with their Local Authority and instead will be required to hold a licence issued by the Home Office.

The amended legislation also requires members of the general public to have a licence issued by the Home Office (which will be enforced by the Police) before they can acquire certain poisons and suppliers will only be able to supply to licence holders.
