Contracted Inspections

‘In-depth' pest control inspections are a requirement of the BRC Global Food Safety Standard. Technical, or Field Biologist, inspections are a requirement of the pest control codes of practice for all of the major UK multiple retailers. Our independent inspections fulfil this need, and can substitute directly for inspections provided by the pest control contractor. Contracted independent inspections offer the following benefits:

Improved performance from the pest control contractor
Potential cost savings; our recommendations are commercially unbiased
Access to an expert who is familiar with the site
Improved due diligence protection
Reports include a quantitative quality assurance assessment of the pest control contractor's performance. The graph above illustrates average contractor performance scores for those sites where we perform regular inspections.

We don't just say we can improve contractor performance, we have the statistics to prove it.
