Biocidal Products Committee concludes on a Union authorisation for disinfectants

The Committee supported the approval of DBNPA for use as a disinfectant. It also concluded on one application for Union authorisation.

 The Biocidal Products Committee supported the approval of DBNPA for use in disinfectants (product-type 4). However, the evaluating Member State, Denmark, has been requested to assess whether the active substance meets the new criteria for endocrine-disrupting properties before the Committee adopts its opinion on the active substance.

The Committee could not conclude on the proposal for chlorfenapyr for use in pest control products, and therefore a revised proposal will need to be submitted to the Committee. 

The Committee also concluded favourably on an application for Union authorisation for a product family containing iodine/PVP-iodine.

Following a request from the European Commission, the Committee also adopted an opinion on a product used for the temporary preservation of corpses. The Committee concluded that a substance in the product acts as an active substance in line with the definition set out in the Biocidal Products Regulation (substance name confidential).
