ECHA Public consultation – Proposal for harmonised classification and labelling (CLH)

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has invited interested parties to comment on the following proposals for harmonised classification and labelling:

 

  • Potassium (oxido-NNO-azoxy)cyclohexane; cyclohexylhydroxydiazene 1-oxide, potassium salt (K-HDO) (CAS 66603-10-9), an approved active substance for use in product type (PT) 8, wood preservatives. The detailed proposal can be viewed on the ECHA website.  Comments should be submitted to ECHA using the dedicated webform by 12 January 2018. 
  • bis(N-hydroxy-N-nitrosocyclohexylaminato-O,O')copper; bis(N-cyclohexyl-diazenium-dioxy)-copper (Cu-HDO) (CAS 15627-09-5 and 321600-89-8), an approved active substance for use in product type (PT) 8, wood preservatives. The detailed proposal can be found on the ECHA website.  Comments should be submitted to ECHA using the dedicated webform by 12 January 2018.

    EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 - Active Substance Approval

    The following active substances have been evaluated under the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR):

    They will be approved for use in biocidal products placed on the EU market, on 1 May 2019. Biocidal products containing this active substance will therefore need to obtain EU BPR authorisation if they are to remain on the market.

    All affected companies are reminded that they must apply for UK product authorisation by 1 May 2019 in order to keep their biocidal products on the UK market after the active substance approval date, 1 May 2019. Please note if your biocidal product contains more than one active substance the date by which you have to apply for product authorisation will be the date the last active substance in the product is approved.

     

    If no application for product authorisation in the UK is made by 1 May 2019 for a biocidal product containing this active substance, the biocidal product shall no longer be made available on the UK market after 28 October 2019. Disposal and use of existing stocks of the biocidal product may continue until 1 May 2020.  If the biocidal product has approval under the UK Control of Pesticides Regulations (COPR) its approval will be revoked.

     

    Guidance for applying for product authorisation in the UK can be found in our EU BPR product authorisation section of the HSE biocides website. Guidance is also available there on the transitional arrangements for existing biocidal products on the UK market including products currently regulated under the COPR, which are affected by the approval of the above active substance. 

     

    The full Union list of approved biocidal active substances, including links to the approval decisions and assessment reports can be found on the ECHA website.


    EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 - Active Substance Approval

    The following new active substance has been evaluated under the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR):

    Fludioxonil (PT 7, 9 and 10)

    It will be approved for use in biocidal products placed on the EU market, on 1 April 2018.

     

    Guidance for applying for product authorisation in the UK can be found in our EU BPR product authorisation section of the HSE biocides website.

      EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 - Criteria for identifying endocrine disruptors in biocides published

      The European Commission has published the delegated regulation setting out scientific criteria for determining endocrine-disrupting properties in biocides. The aim is to improve the free movement of biocidal products within the European Union while ensuring a high level of protection of human and animal health and the environment. The criteria were published in the EU's official journal on 17 November 2017. 


      EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 – ECHA has made calculation sheets to estimate environmental emissions available for download

      The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has now made available for download, calculation sheets for three more biocidal product-types to estimate the release of substances from the products to the environment:

      • wood preservatives (product-type 8)
      • rubber and polymerised materials preservatives (product-type 9)
      • working or cutting fluid preservatives (product-type 13).

        Download the files on ECHA's website under "Emission scenario documents" (product-types 8, 9, 13). Calculation sheets are now available for altogether 15 product-types
