Rodenticides Leaflet Explains Rule Change and Options

23 December 2016, at 6:00am

UK - Since 1 October 2016, a rule that buyers of stewardship-label rodenticides must show proof of competence certification means farmers, gamekeepers and pest controllers unable to do so cannot be supplied.

The rule applies to all supply routes, trade and retail, premises and internet.

To help suppliers explain this to customers, the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use UK has published a leaflet that also sets out four options for those affected:

  1. Undertake a CRRU UK approved training course and exam (
  2. For farmer members of a CRRU UK aligned farm assurance scheme, show proof of membership (
  3. Employ a professional pest control service company (National Pest Technicians Association,; British Pest Control Association,
  4. Purchase amateur use rodenticides.

CRRU UK is responsible for implementation of the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime.

The leaflet is available as a PDF download from, where comprehensive details of the stewardship regime are also available.
