Termite management system installers must:
- Agree to be bound by the Code
- Undergo appropriate construction site safety induction training (ASCC 2007)
- Have qualifications contained in the “National Competencies”, specifically in CPP30911 – Certificate III in Pest Management, and may be required to have one or several of these competencies, dependent on the type of termite management system installation.
- Hold relevant professional indemnity and public liability insurance
- Have completed the AEPMA Code of Practice Training Course, and
- Undertake other training as stipulated by AEPMA’s Code Training Committee
Both Codes include sections stipulating standards in relation to areas such as (as relevant) planning to build, risk assessment, health and safety, ongoing termite management, site assessment, construction considerations, termite management recording, termite treatment processes, environmental hazards and inspections.
The Codes also outline roles and responsibilities for other stakeholders in the termite management industry, particularly in relation to new constructions. For example, building owners and managements, architects, builders and building contractors. However, these roles and responsibilities are suggested standards as these stakeholders are not signatories to the Codes. The relevant sections of the Codes include statements that these stakeholders are not signatories to the Codes.
