Pest Management Business Registration - Western Australia

Service summary

You will require this registration if you intend to carry on a pest management business supplying the services of pest management technicians.

A pest management technician is someone who is paid to do pest management treatments. A pest management treatment is the treatment of any place or thing with pesticides in an attempt to destroy or ward off any animal, plant or other biological entity. Examples of pest management treatments include fumigations and destroying plants. Aerial spraying, formaldehyde preservation and sterilising surgical products are not pest management treatments and do not require this registration.

You will not require this registration if you provide the services of pest management technicians free of charge, or if supplying the services of pest management technicians is not a principal activity of the business.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
