Biocides | Profile / expertise

Since the implementation of the BPD and subsequent BPR , EBRC was responsible for the notification of more than 25 biocidal active substances (including compilation, submission and defence of comprehensive IUCLID data sets and Assessment Reports).

EBRC has subsequently been actively involved in the preparation of full dossiers in support of EU approval of active substances, including environmental, occupational and consumer risk assessments. The range of active substances that EBRC has notified and further covers almost the entire range of 22 product types as defined in the BPD directive.

Under BPD, EBRC has been entrusted with the preparation of a large number of dossiers in support of existing substances from all four priority list, such as:

  • Wood preservatives (PT 08) and rodenticides (PT 14), submitted until March 2004
  • Insecticides (PT 18), submitted until April 2006
  • Disinfectants (PTs 1, 2, 3 and 4), submitted until July 2007
  • Preservatives and other biocidal product types (PTs acc. to BPD: 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 17, 20, 22 and 23), submitted until October 2008

To date, all applications for EU approval prepared by EBRC under BPD or BPR have been successful. In addition, during the course of the EU review of existing substances, EBRC has prepared numerous dossiers applying for national authorisation of biocidal products based on active substances included in the Union list. Active substance dossiers have also been submitted such as renewal dossiers for active substances and product registration dossiers.
