The following active substances have been evaluated under the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR) and the EU Commission has decided to approve them for use in biocidal product placed on the EU market.

Biocidal products containing these active substances will therefore need to obtain EU BPR authorisation if they are to remain in the market.

These substances will be added to the Union list of approved active substances (formerly Annex I of Directive 98/8/EC) for use in biocidal products and treated articles on the following dates, these dates are also the deadline for product dossier submission for biocidal products based containing only these active substances in these product types:

  • 1 November 2015 for Cyproconazole, Lauric acid, Transfluthrin, Synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide (nano) and Ethyl butylacetylaminopropionate: and
  • 1 January 2016 for4,5-Dichloro-2- octyl-2H- isothiazol-3-one.
