A further 18 contributions and 20 posters were shown by the conference participants in seven sessions.

The excursion to the inspection workshops in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, which have been carrying out obligatory inspections for several years now, aimed also at pointing out the specific differences in practice between the countries, the results of which however all assure reliable inspections of high technical quality for the field and air-assisted sprayers in use in the Member States mentioned.

Finally, the participants passed a resolution with recommendations which were to be considered in further consultations for introducing an obligatory inspection to Europe.
