About the IPM Institute of North America

The IPM Institute is a non-profit organization formed in 1998 to create recognition and rewards in the marketplace for goods and service providers who practice IPM. Consumer support for IPM is a powerful incentive for increasing IPM adoption in agriculture, grounds maintenance and public and private facilities.

Organizations, professionals, products and services meeting IPM Institute Standards earn the right to wear the IPM Institute Certified Seal. The Institute’s programs are designed to educate consumers and pesticide users about IPM, encourage self-evaluation by IPM users, and provide verifiable certification for products and services meeting the highest standards for safe and effective pest management.
