Breaking News: Bird Free under threat

Breaking News: Bird Free under threat
04/09/2016

With a proven track record world-wide, Bird Free Fire Gel was introduced into the UK in 2011, where it has also proven itself to be an instant and cost effective solution to problem birds, without being harmful to them, pets or people.

Although a relatively recent addition to the bird control product range in the UK, Bird Free has been widely used in other countries for many years and is currently solving problem bird issues in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the USA, among other locations.

As a safe product (there are no hazardous chemicals used in the formulation of Bird Free), the UK HSE (Health & Safety Executive) granted it a "derogation" to allow it to be sold in the UK without the need for testing against biocidal criteria. Recent European legislative changes however, are about to temporarily stop sales of Bird Free into European countries.

The extended scope of the EU Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR), means that testing will now be required for even safe products such as Bird Free, which regrettably means that there will be a temporary interruption to sales of this great product within the UK and Europe (note: this EU legislation will not affect sales to our customers in other countries).

In anticipation of these changes, BPR-focussed Testing & Evaluation work on Bird Free was started over 12 months ago. The variety and sequence of tests however, combined with post-test evaluation at each stage of the process and final ratification by all EU Member States, is likely to take many more months.

We are very concerned therefore that we may be unable to supply the product again to our UK / EU customers until after the 2017 main bird breeding season (February to May).

...but here is a possible solution for you;

As a result of this change in legislation, Insight Security are able to offer Bird Free for sale within the UK / EU until the 30th October 2016, and users will have until 30th April 2017 to install stock in hand,

...so please consider your needs for the 2017 bird breeding season now, and order your stock before the imminent 30th October 2016 cut-off.

We will of course be offering this great product for sale again with its new certifications at the earliest opportunity, however, in the meanwhile we can only apologise for this temporary interruption to the supply of Bird Free and the inconvenience we know this will cause.

Following conversations with existing customers, we know there is keen demand to continue rolling out this product for installation in locations with problem birds, and given the fact that the product is "So Effective" and offers virtually "Instant Results", we know that there will be a long queue for the product the day it is relaunched!

If you would like us to let you know when the product is relaunched following new EU certifications,

...please email us at; sales@insight-security.com

...with: "Please advise us when Bird Free is re-launched" in the subject line.

In the meanwhile, please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further help or advice.

Best Regards
