Code of Best Practice for Pesticide Waste condensed and updated

The BPCA Code of best practice for Pesticide waste has been updated and re-released as a condensed two-page document.

The document is now available to all pest management professionals and end-users on the BPCA website.

Pesticide Waste version 3 out now

Read it now

The previous, 12-page document has been rebranded as a guidance document and is available to all members in the member documents section of the website.  

If you’re working in a BPCA Servicing company you must follow the Code as it’s part of our membership criteria.

The document is freely available to anyone, so even if you’re not a BPCA member, you’re encouraged to read the Code and make sure you’re working towards the industry best practice.

Natalie Bungay, BPCA Field Officer, who worked on the document said:

“The previous Code of Best Practice is a great document that went into a lot of detail about how pest management companies should be dealing with their waste.

“However, it was a long document and not particularly useful for a referencing quickly.

“We’ve scooped out all the essential information from the old document, and popped it into a handy two-pager.

“The old version (all 12 pages of it) is still available for BPCA members who want more support in the form of a guidance document.”

What is a Code of Best Practice?

BPCA Codes of Best Practice (COBP) are written rules which explain how people working in the pest management industry should behave in a particular situation.

The Code of Best Practice is freely available to everyone through the BPCA website, meaning it’s available in full to non-members and the general public.
