Get an overview of the biocidal product families concept

Preparing an application dossier for a biocidal product family (BPF) can be a big challenge depending on the number of biocidal products, co-formulants, product types (PTs) claimed and intended uses to be included.

Key aspects covered by the training course include:

Having a comprehensive understanding of the BPF concept allows applicants to streamline the resources and time they spend preparing their applications.

This course will be particularly useful for prospective authorisation holders for a BPF and those dealing with the uncertainties and discussions around the splitting and restructuring of product families under the biocidal products Regulation.

The course will give an overview of the BPF concept, focusing on the following aspects:

  • similarity of uses;
  • similarity of composition and grouping of co-formulants;
  • similar levels of risk and efficacy;
  • best practices for BPF pre-submission meetings; and
  • splitting of families for ongoing applications.

Nathalie Hanon and Cyril Durou (CEHTRA) will guide you through the BPF concept, the steps necessary for grouping biocidal products into a BPF, and the challenges to be faced when applying the BPF concept according to the latest regulatory guidance and regulations.
