Code of Best Practice

BPCA strive to continually improve the standards within the pest control industry through the professionalism of its members. To become a BPCA member, companies must meet strict criteria showing their professionalism and standards, this means all BPCA members are required to adhere to the Codes of Best Practice written by the BPCA.

Our Codes of Best Practice outline the responsibilities and correct practices that members are expected to adhere to, and our Codes are subject to regular review by the BPCA Servicing Committee or are dictated by changes to legislation.

The Codes of Best Practice are publicly available, allowing you to see the standards BPCA members work to. Find out more about BPCA and why you should use a BPCA member here or check your pest control company is a member here
