Brexit and The CRRU UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime: Business as usual

Dr Alan Buckle, Chairman of CRRU UK, said:

“CRRU UK will seek clarification in due course from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)

about the possible effects, if any, of Brexit on the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime. For

the time being, the message is ‘business as usual’.

"Although the time-lines for authorisation of rodenticide products in UK have been set

recently by the European Commission, the rodenticide stewardship regime is unique to the

UK. Its requirements and operation were determined by CRRU UK in response to the

concerns of HSE about the ability of professional users in this country to apply rodenticides


"There is no reason to believe that any changes will occur to the regime in the short to

medium term as a result of Brexit. Indeed, it is my opinion that there are unlikely to be any

changes at all.”

“Just to thank the team at the NPTA, earlier this year a company in Crewe was looking for Field biologist advice, you very kindly gave them my name; this has since lead to a contract that I now manage so thanks for that! Also having got involved in School work you helped me in getting CRB checked. The NPTA team of people are always very helpful and you do get that feeling that you run the organisation to help the members this came across when chatting to you all last week at Pest Tech. Once again thanks to all involved. ”
