This conference, attended by FoBiG staff, provided a state-of-the-art overview on the biocides regulation landscape. Many changes are actually coming with the entry-into-force of the new Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) (Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012) in September 2013, which replaced the Biocidal Product Directive (BPD). Among many other changes, biocidal product dossiers now have to be prepared and submitted using IUCLID 5.5. Also, many guidance documents, e.g. on definition of substances of concern, or on mixture assessment, are still under development.
If you have questions regarding biocidal product authorization, contact Klaus Schneider.
