Supporting your obligations for EU and Global Biocides legislations

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. In addition, with the inclusion of treated articles in the scope of the EU Biocidal Products Regulation in 2013, both EU and non-EU bodies wishing to market goods containing preservatives may have new and complex obligations to understand and follow.

Our experts can help you identify whether your products or articles fall within the scope of global biocides legislation and support you in preparing for those obligations.

How can we help?
