Ensure you check your biocidal product deadlines to keep your products on the market

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) have issued a list of upcoming deadlines for biocides to help companies comply with their obligations under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) and the Review Programme Regulation (RPR).

In 2018, you should apply for product authorisation to keep your existing products on the market if they contain substances for which legal deadlines apply within that year.

Global use of biocides is widespread and covers industries from oil refineries to textile manufacture and from disinfectants to pest control. Ensuring continued marketing of biocides requires knowledge of the regulatory requirements in each territory, including scope issues, data requirements and submission requirements, as well as close monitoring of relevant active substances.
