Amended Rules of the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission effective April 1

GDA emblemA new webpage has been created to host the amended Rules of the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission (SPCC) which became effective on April 1st.  The new page includes:

  • All chapters of the rules of the SPCC
  • The 2014 Residential Building Code (RBC) for under-floor ventilation
  • The rule implementation, assistance & compliance timeline
  • Structural Pest Control Act of 1955 and
  • FIFRA.

The new page  named Laws and Regulations is found on the SPCC website and the Structural Pest Control Section webpage.  All licensees were notified of the proposed rule changes in October 2013.  Based on the comments received during the public comment period, the SPCC revised some of the proposed rules.  As part of our outreach and compliance assistance effort, this announcement  was sent to all licensee email addresses that we have currently on file.

The SPCC is currently working closely with the Georgia Department of Agriculture to develop guidance policies and fact sheets to assist the industry with compliance.  As these resources become available, they will be posted on the SPCC website under “Guidance Policies”.
