Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use

Rodenticides are vital to prevent disease in humans and animals to protect property and equipment from damage and to ensure the highest possible standards of food hygiene.  However, the way we use rodenticide causes contamination of some of our most important wildlife species.

The rodenticide industry, acting as a whole, has recognised the need to address the concerns surrounding the responsible use of rodenticides by creating the CRRU Stewardship Regime to ensure that rodenticides are used correctly and in ways that will minimise the exposure of wildlife. Lodi UK is a Director of CRRU UK and places paramount importance on the correct use of its rodent baits to ensure that end users get the results they have paid for whilst ensuring that none target species do not come to any harm from rodenticide use.  

On 1st October 2016, new rules came into force meaning that all professional rodenticides with CRRU stewardship conditions attached to them can only be supplied to professional users holding certification demonstrating compliance with the CRRU UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime.  

Professional pest controllers, farmers and gamekeepers purchasing stewardship labelled products will require proof of competence at point-of-sale. This can be either a certificate from an approved training course on rodent control or, until December 2017 for farmers, up-to-date proof of membership of an assurance scheme whose audited standards include a requirement for safe and effective rodent control. To check the latest CRRU approved certification and farm assurance schemes please see the Think Wildlife website or follow the links below.

Suppliers must also have a signed declaration form on file for each customer purchasing CRRU labelled rodenticide, either Supply Chain, End User or Farm Assurance.  To ensure that suppliers and end users are compliant in the supply and use of stewardship labelled rodenticides, please follow the links below for the point-of-sale declarations, currently approved CRRU Training Certificates and approved Farm Assurance Schemes.
