The Biocidal Products Committee (BPC) adopted seven opinions supporting the approval of four active substances and two opinions for Union authorisation.

The Biocidal Products Committee concluded on the applications of the following active substance product-type combinations:

(*) Icaridine  for product-type 19 (repellents and attractants);

(*) Cyanamide for product-types 3 (veterinary hygiene) and 18 (insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods);

(*) Formaldehyde for product-types 2 (disinfectants and algaecides not intended for direct application to humans or animals) and 3 (veterinary hygiene);

(*) Carbendazim for product-types 7 (film preservatives) and 10 (construction material preservatives).

The respective evaluating Member States (eCA) assessed if these active substances meet the new criteria for endocrine-disrupting properties. For cyanamide the eCA concluded – and the BPC confirmed – that this active substance meets the criteria. For the other active substances no conclusion could be drawn by the committee based on the available data.

The BPC also adopted positive opinions on two applications for Union authorisation of a biocidal product family based on propan-2-ol in product-type 2 (disinfectants and algaecides not intended for direct application to humans or animals) and  iodine/PVP-iodine in product-types 2 and 4 (food and feed area).
