Overcoming the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis – a global picture

The Covid-19 crisis has shaken up the biocides industry: it has caused an unprecedented demand for disinfectants, disruptions to supply chains and shortages of active substances. As industry has rallied to ramp up production and get biocides to market, regulators have adapted legal frameworks with derogations and exemptions for disinfectants in light of the global crisis. Challenges remain, however, with an ever-changing mosaic of measures globally and the supply of, and demand for, disinfectants ebbing and flowing as countries move in and out of lockdown.

Chemical Watch’s Covid-19 Global Overview conference brings together leading figures from industry, member states’ competent authorities and regulatory authorities. Through virtual presentations and Q&As, this line-up of experts will give overviews of derogations in place, supply and demand, rules for getting biocides to market in different countries and industry experiences managing the demand.
