Enhance your knowledge of biocidal products regulation

Join Chemical Watch Events & Training’s 26th annual Biocides Europe conference in the beautiful city of Vienna this December, where we will provide you with the essential insights on the latest developments, challenges and next steps concerning the biocidal products regulation (BPR). 

After 10 years of the BPR, the biocides sector is still confronting significant challenges. Companies and regulators across the sector continue to face headwinds, delays and disruption. It is crucial to stay informed of new updates to help you formulate proactive responses. This event will help you stay competitive and compliant with criteria for identifying endocrine disrupting (ED) chemicals and the growing push for greater sustainability under the chemicals strategy for sustainability (CSS). Expert speakers will also explore BPR impacts on claims and labelling and downstream sectors. 

Over two days, leading figures from industry and member state competent and regulatory authorities will come together to share knowledge and guidance through a series of informative presentations, networking and interactive Q&As. 

Join us in person or virtually
