The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) is the professional body for all environmental health practitioners (EHPs) whether employed by government, local authorities, industry or working in private practice. The CIEH is the leading environmental health charity campaigning for improvements in environmental and public health.
In 2001 the CIEH set up the National Pest Advisory Panel (NPAP) to provide specialist advice and solutions on the problems caused by pests. Its members are pest management experts from within the environmental health profession, industry and academia who have been selected for their individual expertise.
The work of NPAP highlights the CIEH’s continued commitment to emerging public health issues and its determination to overcome these issues effectively. To date NPAP has undertaken a number of projects which have been designed to raise awareness and establish successful and effective pest management practices.
