Who is SAPCA?
Established in 1964 the South African Pest Control Association functions as the voice for the South African Pest Control Industry & provides its members with an extensive range of support services focusing on the following key areas:
The South African Pest Control Association (SAPCA) is commissioned by the Government in terms of the Fertilizers, Farm Feeds, Agricultural Remedies and Stock Remedies Act, 1947 (Act No. 36 of 1947) to serve and protect the safety and health of the public by establishing and maintaining minimum standards of practice, knowledge and skills of registered pest management applicators in the country as well as to establish and maintain standards of professional ethics among them.
The discretion provided for in the Act to make use of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as mechanism to determine renewal of registration gives SAPCA the opportunity to comply with both the renewal of registration and CPD requirements. SAPCA will therefor institute a system of CPD, which is linked to renewal of registration for all registered pest management applicators.
The Professional body, PCIPC (Pest Control Industries Professional Council), has been established to proactively work and promote pest control practices in and open forum free of any political or commercial agenda, so as to protect the health and safety and well-being of the South African public and to protect the integrity of the South African Pest Control Environment and practices.
