In collaboration with local pest management associations, CEPA (Confederation of European Pest Management Associations) is creating a network of professional pest management companies across Europe that can demonstrate their competence to clients. We will also be targeting clients to encourage them to only specify CEPA Certified® companies. This will provide competitive advantage over those companies who do not have the standard. It will also help to avoid government regulation of our sector in which we have had no part: it is a way for us to control our own destiny.
CEPA has developed a self-evaluation tool to help you achieve the standard. It can be used before you start the certification process at no cost, allowing you to see if anything needs to be done before you proceed. Simply visit the CEPA website to find out more.
By achieving CEPA Certified status you will quickly receive a significant return on investment, and be helping to promote the professionalism of our sector to clients.
