Gov of Jersey adopts UK rodenticide stewardship regime

The Government of Jersey is introducing rodenticide stewardship covering the sale and use of professional rodenticides, modelled on the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use UK’s regime.

Jersey’s Growth, Housing & Environment department has announced that stewardship point-of-sale competence checks will be introduced on 18 July next year, with CRRU assisting towards this.

Jersey authorities have confirmed that professional use rodenticides there are supplied already from the UK with appropriate HSE and stewardship labelling. In common with UK, they are vigilant to prevent non-UK, and therefore non-stewardship, products being sold there.

For stewardship-label rodenticide distributors and users, implementation details will be explained locally during the year ahead.
