Rat Bait Legislative Changes

Rat Bait Legislative Changes & Training Opportunities at Mole Valley Farmers

The legislative requirements relating to the use of rat bait are changing.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has tasked the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) to co-ordinate the development and delivery of the stewardship regime. The changes are to combat the issue of poisoning non-target animals.

As a result of this, customers will start to see some new labels appearing on products weighing over 1.5kg, with restrictions on purchase of any rodenticides that carry the new CRRU label unless you are able to prove that you are a professional user. The legislation also states any product already owned by an amateur user must be used by 31 March 2017.
