AEPMA is committed to the continuous improvement of the quality and reputation of Australia’s pest management industry. AEPMA is committed to developing, preparing and promoting definitive ‘Codes of Practice’ which describe and provide expert guidance on best practice across an increasing range of key pest management areas.
AEPMA Codes of Practice set out industry standards of conduct, describe and provide expert guidance on best practice across an increasing range of key pest management areas. They are guidelines for fair dealing between Pest Managers and their customers and they outline what a customer can expect from a pest management company, when he or she agrees to engage its services.

AEPMA recently sought and was granted authorisation by the ACCC for its Codes of Practice in Termite Management. What does this mean for Pest Managers?
The ACCC recognised that by abiding by the standards set out in the Codes, pest managers who chose to be bound by the codes were also required to meet specific levels of practical experience and education in termite management practices in order to become signatories to the Codes.
The Codes are voluntary and any Pest Manager/Termite Management System Installer (MEMBER OR NON-MEMBER) who signs up to them will have a valuable point of difference with which to market their business. Unlike Standards Australia, the Codes are freely available to customers and provide a transparent Dispute Resolution Process for both pest managers and their clients, if necessary. Pest Managers who undertake work under these Codes of Practice will also be listed on the AEPMA website.
