EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR) – ECHA's open invitation following redefinition of active substance in the biocides active substance review programme

Where the evaluation of an active substance demonstrates that it does not exactly match the identity of the substance as originally included in the Review Programme (Part 1 of Annex II of the biocides Review Regulation), the substance identity will be redefined by the evaluating competent authority (after consultation with the participant). It will be the redefined substance that will then go forward for Approval under the EU BPR, whilst for the 'original' substance an opportunity will be made for industry to come forward and take over the role of participant, and so support that 'original' substance through the review programme.

The following active substance/product type combination originally included in the review programme have been so redefined and are therefore no longer considered to be supported in the biocides active substance review programme:

  • 'Copper' or any other form of copper and/or coating than 'copper flakes (coated with aliphatic acids)' in PT21

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published an open invitation, which allows interested companies to take over the role of participant for the above active substance/product type combinations.

Interested companies should complete the notification procedure in Article 17 of the Review Regulation by the 07/03/2018. Notifications should be submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), via R4BP.

If no-one takes over the role of participant, these active substance/product type combinations will be subject to a non-approval decision and products containing them for the affected product types will have to be removed from the market.
