Ten (10) Years of Professionalization Under a Self-Regulated Industry

BACKGROUND INFO: On February 2007, the Supreme Court ruled that the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) did not have any jurisdiction over the “urban pest control operators” in the country.

In 2007, the inconspicuous primordial of the Federation began one evening in mid-July when the incumbent President of PAPFI (Uly Dagan) and the Presidents of PCAP (Jesy Aquino) and PEAP (Dodjie Leyva) met to discuss the fate of the industry, given the scenario that the FPA could no longer exercise its function as a regulatory body. The three presidents of the Professional Pest Management Associations ventured the ideas of consolidating efforts, meet more often and come up with measures in helping their respective members of the associations and the industry in general.

Over dinner on September 6, 2007 at the Sangkalan Grill & Restaurant in Quezon City, the first Organizational Meeting was held, involving the majority of the Officers and Board Members of the three associations: the Philippine Association of Professional Fumigators, Inc. (PAPFI); the Pest Control Association of the Philippines (PCAP), Inc.; and the Pest Exterminators Association of the Philippines (PEAP), Inc.. After a lengthy discussion, a consensus was reached to federate.
