Structural Pest Control Board Regulates the Pest Control Industry

The Structural Pest Control Board came into being “to provide for the registration and licensing of persons engaged in such practice and for the protection of the public in the practice of structural pest control”. This took place when the 1935 Assembly Bill 2382 was signed by the Governor of California State Legislation in July of the same year and became a law a few months later in September.

One among Many Boards, Bureaus, Commissions and Committees

The Structural Pest Control Board is just one among many other boards, bureaus, commissions as well as committees that the Department of Consumer Affairs controls. In fact the Department of Consumer Affairs keeps check over the provision of consumer services as well as provides administrative oversight along with support.

The composition of the Structural Pest Control Board is that it has seven members of which the law requires that four should be public members and the remaining three can be members of the Pest Control Industry. Two members and three licensed industry members are appointed by the Governor of the state and the term of the board members is not more than two four-year terms. The positions do not carry a salary though each board member can be paid a Diem for each Board meeting, committee meeting or another meeting that they attend. In addition, they can also be reimbursed their travel expenses.

The main aim of the Structural Pest Control Board is to provide protection as well as give benefit to the public through regulation of the structural pest control industry. It aims at being the national leader to create an environment in which the public is entirely protected as well as kept abreast of all happenings within the industry and the industry itself is allowed to function without undue restraint.

The Structural Pest Control Board will offer advice on, among other things, what you should do before you buy products. Products that are sold door-to-door should be compared for prices as well as quality elsewhere since sellers may not have a permanent place of business and thus would make it hard to resolve disputes later on.

There is also a Structured Pest Control Board in the state of Texas that was created as the first Texas state agency that has the authority to set the standards as well as license applicators of pesticides. As with the California chapter, the aim is to protect the health as well as safety and welfare of the citizens of Texas and also to protect the environment against any pesticide misuse as well as to promote professional standards.
