The Directive 2009/128 / EC of the European Parliament establishes a framework for the implementation of National Action Plan referring to the sustainable use of pesticides in every country. One of the areas covered by the Directive relates directly to the introduction of mandatory monitoring and inspection of pesticide application machines. Considering that the Republic of Macedonia does not have a compulsory inspection, and as a country candidate is bound to harmonize its regulations, the basic aim of this research is to determine the current condition of the pesticide application machines. The survey was conducted in the Ovchepole region, which covers the city of Sveti Nikole and surrounding villages. 46 machines were visually and operationally checked. The results of this research will be a good basis for further research and implementation of mandatory inspection of these machines in the Republic Macedonia.
