What is CEPA ?
Based in Brussels, CEPA is the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations. It represents at the European level, 25 national and regional trade associations (2014) and an industry with a turnover of more than € 3,000 million generated by 10, 000+ companies with over 40,000 employees. In addition to the associations the CEPA membership also includes manufacturers, distributors and service companies in Europe.
When and why was CEPA set up ?
CEPA was set up in 1974 by the Belgian, British, Dutch, French and Spanish National Associations. These organizations had the vision to see that National Associations could not, by themselves, defend the interests of their members at a European level.
History has proved them right. Today some 80% of National regulations reflect decisions taken at EU level through European Directives.
