CEPA ISO 16636 | Bureau Veritas
More quality by certified pest management
For companies in the food industry, freedom from pests is one of the key factors in being able to offer flawless products or services that are harmless to health. For this reason, food companies must be able to rely on the professionalism of the pest controller when choosing one.
With the background of promoting the professionalisation of plague management, the European standard 16636 for in-house pest controllers was developed. The standard, developed by the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations (CEPA), is the first universal standard that defines the requirements and competencies of pest controllers to protect all customers, public health, property and the environment.
The standard is a Europe-wide recognized seal of approval. The aim is to ensure that pest control services are carried out professionally and in accordance with standards and that damage caused by pest control can be reduced.
