Pest control solutions company BASF has been awarded HACCP certification for its rodenticide bait, Selontra, meaning it can be used in settings where food is handled.
The accreditation means Selontra is certified for use in and around facilities that operate a HACCP based Food Safety Programme.
As well as becoming certified in the UK, Selontra has also been awarded the HACCP approved status in six additional European countries: Greece, France, Spain, Denmark, Germany, and Sweden.
To obtain the accreditation, BASF was required to submit a host of marketing materials, allergy statements, data sheets, and product information for each country.
Helen Ainsworth, BASF pest control specialist, said: “We’re proud to lead the way in pest control in both urban and rural environments, and are delighted to share the news that Selontra has been awarded the HACCP certificate in seven countries across Europe.
“This accreditation allows Pest Control Operators to effectively prevent, manage and control rodent infestations in various settings, as well as maintain a high standard of health and safety and prevent costly damage to facilities.”
