Event overview

This in-person training workshop will take you through the requirements for approval of biocidal products under EU’s Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) and enable you to discern the pros and cons of the different application forms. Through a number of examples, you will learn what an application should contain and how to structure your application. You will also gain practical knowledge of the various application options.

In addition, we will have an in-depth look at biocidal product families, the requirements for endocrine disruptors, data requirements and IT tools. This includes instructions on how to use the R4BP 3 (Register for Biocidal Products), Iuclid 6 and SPC Editor programmes. We will then wrap-up with an overview of the status of biocide legislation at national and EU level.

Key topics include:

  • requirements for market authorisation under the BPR;
  • the different application procedures (national authorisation, mutual recognition, simplified authorisation, and approval of identical products);
  • data and documentation requirements;
  • the biocidal product family concept; and
  • the legal requirements for endocrine disruptors.

  • Your company produces and markets biocides and biocidal products
