(2)  If a permit is in force in respect of a pesticide, a person to whom the permit applies must on each occasion, before using the pesticide:

(b)  ensure that the permit is explained to the person.
Maximum penalty:

Note.
 An offence against subsection (2) committed by a corporation is an executive liability offence attracting executive liability for a director or other person involved in the management of the corporation—see section 112.
(3)  If a pesticide is mixed with any other substance, any requirement under subsection (1) or (2) in relation to that pesticide is not affected.
Note.
 The mixing of a pesticide with another substance still means that the approved label or permit for the pesticide must be read.
