EN 16636 certified contributing factor to City contract

Member story | BPCA online

South London-based Beaver Pest Control has been awarded the pest control contract for the City of London Corporation.

The three-year deal included elements such as EN 16636 Certification, provision of work experience placements, and the ability to reduce vehicle pollution through the use of footmen in the City.

David Lodge, Director at Beaver said,

“It was reassuring to see holding or working towards the EN16636 standard on this tender, not just conforming to it.  I’m told it was a contributing factor in our bid.”

It is expected that the Contractor will be certificated to meet the European Standard for Pest Control Services EN16636, or be working towards and achieve certification within 18 months of commencement of the contract. Certification to be maintained throughout the contract period.

“I am definitely seeing EN 16636 Certified [CEPA Certified] appearing on more and more tenders, so would encourage companies to take it up sooner rather than later, or miss out.”

David is also Chair of BPCA’s Contract Sharing Network, which now has over 70 members and is approaching national coverage.

“I have to encourage colleagues from companies who hold EN 16636 into the CSN. It makes the network altogether stronger and enables those who have won a contract with EN16636 certification to uphold the SLA through sub-contracting companies.”

For more information on CSN, email csn@bpca.org.uk
