ECHA Guidance on the Biocidal Products Regulation

Your substances


The Guidance on the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) applies to applications for active substance approval and product authorization submitted from September 1, 2013, when the BPR came into effect. This document outlines the obligations set by the BPR and provides technical scientific advice on fulfilling information requirements (Part A) and assessing the efficacy of biocidal products (Parts B and C). Additionally, the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) guidance and related documents remain relevant in areas without BPR guidance or during ongoing BPD evaluations. The European Commission has further elaborated on these obligations in documents from Biocides Competent Authorities meetings.
