On Nov. 30, the Confederation of European Pest Control Associations (CEPA) will be holding a one-day Europest management meeting at the Hotel Bloom in Brussels.

Top of the agenda is Pierre Choraine, Policy Officer Biocides, from the European Commission's Directorate General for the Environment, who will highlight what the practical implications are for pest control resulting from the new biocides legislative framework.

Also on the agenda for the day is Johan Svalby, director of European Affairs, from the Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU (FACE) who will explain why hunters and pest managers are natural allies in the pursuit of a constructive approach to protecting public health.

His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion addressing how industry and legislators can work together to protect the health and environment of Europe’s citizens. The panel will be lead by current CEPA chairman, Gunnar Akerblom, who will be joined by a spokesperson for the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), Pierre Choraine from DG Environment and also Julie Girling, Member of the European Parliament for the UK (Group of the European Conservatives and Reformists).

In addition to this legislative update, the day begins with an extra-ordinary CEPA General Assembly during which the next CEPA President will be elected. Also to be presented will be the association’s plans for 2011, along with reports from individual country representatives.

The day concludes with an optional visit to the Brussels City Museum of Sewers. The Brussels sewers are a gigantic subterranean network stretching to over 320 km in length.

This Europest meeting will be held at the Hotel Bloom, 250 Rue Royale, Brussels, Belgium. Further details, including how to register, can be found on the CEPA website at www.cepa-europe.org
