The BACCS Scheme is designed for contractors providing professional pesticide services and advice in the Amenity/ Industrial sector. BACCS is a rigorous annual assessment for amenity contractors working in local authority, industrial, utility and other environmentally sensitive areas.
The objective of BACCS is to provide a means of recognising, through the certification scheme, suitably qualified, accredited contractors and their staff, as professionals in amenity pesticide application and related activities that would be recognised both within the Industry, by the general public and local and national government.
BACCS ensures that professional competence is maintained through suitable training of individuals involved in pesticide application. The scheme also ensures professional conduct of contractors through annual assessments and on-site verification visits.
BACCS is a recognised independent scheme with backing from:
- Amenity Forum
- City & Guilds
- LOCAL AUTHORITY ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH OFFICER
