Our History

IASIS is an independent company originally set up in 1993 jointly by

  • APHA (Animal and Plant Health Association) who represent the manufacturers of plant protection products and animal veterinary medicines
  • FARM (Federation of Agrochemical Retail Merchants) who represent the retailers of plant protection products selling them to farmers and other professional users.

IASIS was run by a Management Committee representing the two founding organisations along with representatives from Teagasc, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) who were represented by the Pesticide Registration and Control Divisions (PRCD) of the DAFM, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and the Professional Agricultural Contractors of Ireland (PAC).

In 2009 the IASIS Management Committee was strenghtened by the addition of representatives of the Agricultural Science Association (ASA) and the Agricultural Consultants Association (ACA) represented by the Irish Tillage Consultants Association (ITCA).

The Board of IASIS comprises a Chairman- Dr Mark Lynch, the former head of the PCS, and three Directors - John Keogh, APHA, Paul O'Doherty, FARM and Bernard Hannon, IPCA.
