Showcasing our Services to Professional Pest Management

31/10/16

Our CEPA Product Manager, Jessica Morgan, will be presenting to leaders from the pest management industry this week as she takes to the stage at Pest Tech, the UK’s premier pest control exhibition. 


Hosted every year by the NPTA (National Pest Technicians Association), Pest Tech caters for every sector of the pest control industry, with exhibitors and guest speakers covering all aspects of vertebrate and invertebrate management.

Jessica has been invited to deliver a presentation on behalf of Bureau Veritas to delegates on BS EN 16636:2015 - Pest management services requirements and competences, which is the first European Pest Management Standard, and the accompanying certification scheme, CEPA Certified®

The presentation will cover the background to the standard, what it takes to achieve CEPA Certified® status and the benefits for pest control companies, as well as introducing some success stories from across the industry. 

Jessica will also explain the role that Bureau Veritas played in helping to shape the standard and in developing the certification process as a service to benefit pest control companies and their customers. 

She said: “Before the introduction of CEPA Certified®, there had been no national standards or licensing requirements in place for pest management companies. This made it difficult for consumers and businesses to choose a reputable supplier they could trust, but it also meant it was tough for smaller pest management companies to prove their quality when faced with competition from industry leaders. 

“Now this business standard offers the opportunity to improve the quality of pest management services throughout Europe, giving firms the opportunity to demonstrate the quality and professionalism of their business and benchmark themselves against a reputable and highly recognised standard.

“Bureau Veritas has been raising awareness of the scheme and our audit team has been undertaking a large number of audits across the industry. We estimate the scheme in the UK now covers a third of the UK’s pest management companies, a level which is now triggering the attention of major food groups, standard and specification owners and legislators. 

“Each group has a slightly different set of drivers but with the common concern of our decade; a growing awareness of environmental hazards and an increased adversity to ‘risk’.”
