Food Legislation for Pest Control

Ever-tightening policies and regulations today make it essential for companies handling food to take appropriate measures for prevention, early detection and control of pests in food and food supplies.

Rentokil is your professional partner when it comes to controlling pest risks in compliance with industry best practice and statutory obligations including:

  • Occupational Safety Act
  • SANS 10133:1997 (The application of pesticides in food environments)
  • SANS 10049:2012 (Food safety management requirements for prerequisite programmes)
  • Prerequisite Programmes (PRP's: the foundations for food safety, hygiene and quality) to allow your business to comply with HACCP​
  • SANS 10156:2007 (The Handling of Chilled and Frozen food) 
  • Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act 54 of 1972
Our experts can advise you on the use of appropriate monitoring or non-toxic systems in highly sensitive production and storage areas where the use of poisonous bait for rodent control is not permitted.
