About the BPCA

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) is the leading UK trade association representing those organisations with a professional interest in the eradication of public health pests. We are a not-for-profit organisation which acts in the interests of our members and on behalf of the pest management industry within the UK.

What is BPCA's role?

The provision of pest control services to a professional standard can be an area which is overlooked, yet the economics of inadequate pest control can be catastrophic. BPCA places great importance on promoting the highest standards of professionalism within the industry. All organisations joining the Association have to prove their competence before their membership is accepted.

It is the role of the Association to highlight the risks of inadequate control, to offer guidance in what to look for when searching for a pest control contractor, provide general pest advice and guidance documentation, and finally how to select an appropriate pest control professional.

Why should I use a BPCA member?

By choosing a BPCA member you are ensuring the use of a contractor who can provide a professional and consistent service.

BPCA Codes of Best Practice outline the responsibilities and correct practices that members are expected to adhere to; and our Codes are subject to regular review by the BPCA Servicing Committee or are dictated by changes to legislation.

The Codes of Best Practice are publicly available, allowing you to see the standards BPCA members work to.
