QUEZON CITY | February 24, 2022 – As the agency is gearing towards digitalization, the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) inked its collaboration with Landbank of the Philippines for the online payment of accreditation services on February 24, 2023, at the FPA Board Room, Quezon City.


FPA OIC Executive Director Julieta Lansangan and the Landbank EDSA-NIA branch Head Marilou M. Saturno, led the ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) witnessed by the FPA Management Committee.


Through this alternative payment system, clients for accreditation, such as Accredited Responsible Care Officer (ARCO), Certified Pesticide Applicator (CPA), Accredited Safety Dispenser (ASD), and researchers, can now pay fees online. This partnership would greatly benefit the clients for easy access and minimize recurrent transactions in the Central Office.


Ms. Saturno provided a walkthrough of the online payment processing using the LinkBiz Portal and assured FPA that any modification for improvement would be applied as soon as all transactions, including licensing, will be integrated in the future.


Here are the easy steps of paying on Link.bizportal:


1. Access https://www.lbp-eservices.com/egps/portal/Merchants.jsp and choose Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority.


2. Choose the type of accreditation you’re paying for.


3. Fill in the required information. Do note that amounts are fixed for specific accreditation type.
