BPCA Registered accepted route for register of pest professionals in Ireland

BPCA Registered has been approved as a recognised system for the employees of members working in Ireland to evidence their skills, qualifications and continued professional development. 

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) requires all trained professional users to register as a Pest Management Trained Professional User (PMU).

Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine accepts BPCA Register on Pest Management Trained Professional User

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) individual recognition scheme is now an accepted CPD scheme allowing pest professionals to maintain their place on the register. 

BPCA Registered cards are now authorised to carry a PMU number. 

Members of the BPCA Registered scheme (who have their Level 3 Award in Pest Management Services Trained Professional User qualification), are now able to meet the requirements set out in rodenticide product labels under EU Biocidal Products Regulations.

Karen Dawes, BPCA Training Development Manager, said:

 “Less than a year after its launch, BPCA Registered has already established itself as a robust and sustainable method of evidencing the professionalism of the BPCA members and their staff. 

“We aspire to move the culture of CPD in the sector away from being a collection system by encouraging technicians to take a planned and integrated approach to self-development.

“Our approach has been welcomed by our members, service users and the professional sector”.  

Ian Andrew, BPCA Chief Exec, said: 

“We welcome DAFM’s decision to approve the scheme for members of its register. 

“We’re looking forward to working with them in the future to ensure further developments reinforce and strengthen the professional development of our members working in Ireland”. 

Next steps

If you’re already on BPCA Registered and work in Ireland, you can contact BPCA, and we’ll register your PMU number against your account. 

If you’re not on the scheme yet, but you are a BPCA member, then you can contact our team, and we’ll get your company enrolled.
