Biocidal products

ECHA. As from 1st September biocidal products consisting of, containing, or generating a “relevant substance”, cannot be made placed on the EU market unless the substance supplier or product supplier is included in the list for the product type(s) to which the product belongs.

Exceptions apply for biocidal products where the active substance dossier has not yet been validated by a Member State Competent Authority (i.e. active substance not yet considered as “relevant”), for example due to transitional arrangements for biocidal products which were not covered by the previous Biocides Directive and substances where the original substance identity has been changed.

The official pdf list is published together with an excel list to help companies and authorities to search the relevant information.
