Rentokil, the world’s leading commercial pest control company achieves certification for the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations’ (CEPA) new standard for Pest Management Services – EN16636 – across the European countries in which it operates.
The new standard is an important step for the pest control industry in aligning standards across Europe. It provides a robust auditing system which providers must adhere to, ensuring a high quality of work for customers and thus helping eliminate rogue traders.
As a leading provider of pest control services, Rentokil demonstrated its commitment to its customers by working alongside CEPA to help develop the Standard, which was ratified by the European Standards Institute (CEN) on 13th January 2016.
The purpose of EN 16636 is to ensure the protection of customers, public health and the environment through a responsible approach to pest management in all countries of the European Union and European Free Trade Association.
Companies can declare compliance with the Standard and following an external audit through a registered certifying organisation, become certified.
Bertrand Montmoreau, CEPA Chair
