The 2019 guidelines were developed as a resource for pest management professionals that provide service to the retail food service industry. This guidance is comprised of three sections that all interact together – record-keeping and communication are a major part of implementing an integrated pest management program for retail food handling facilities. This guide will help with developing a true partnership between the pest control operator and the restaurant or food service client for excellent service.
Third party audit programs are essential for food processing facilities to remain vigilant in food safety, comply with the Food Safety Modernization Act, and to maintain certification. NPMA has created this audit scheme to assist the pest management industry in maintaining proper pest control practices to help ensure that these facilities pass third party audits.
The 2016 Pest Management Standards for Food Processing & Handling Facilities, accompanying test, and study guide were developed as an invaluable resource to protect food and comply with Food Safety Modernization Act. NPMA continues to work with Federal Agencies and major global auditing companies to assist in ensuring the safety of America's food supply.
To ensure industry professionals have the best possible guidance on controlling bed bugs effectively, responsibly and safely, NPMA has created Best Management Practices for Bed Bugs (BMPs), guidelines developed by industry professionals, regulators, academics, and entomologists.
