About The Pest Management Association
In 1998 the Pest Management industry was presented with a set of draft regulations for Pest Control Operators by the Pesticides and Toxic Chemicals Control Board. The Board, like others in the Public and Private sectors, desired to discuss the industry’s issues with a representative organization and not individuals or individual companies. Since there was none, a handful of Pest Management Service providers collaborated to meet the challenge.The Pest Management Association of Trinidad and Tobago (PMATT) was formed and registered as a non-profit organization in 2007.
We envision the transformation of an industry where consumers and the public, in general, are assured of an environment that is safe and healthy, through the safe use and application of pesticides and other non-chemical treatment procedures, by trained and certified Pest Management professionals.
Our Mission is to bring collaboration amongst Pest Management service providers and professionals and to promote the highest level of business ethics, professionalism, and best practice industry standards, through education and training, for the benefit of consumers and the environment.
