Hydrogen peroxide (PTs 1-6)

Hydrogen peroxide will be approved for use in biocidal products placed on the EU market on 1 February 2017.  Biocidal products containing this active substance will therefore need to obtain EU BPR authorisation if they are to remain on the market.

Companies placing biocidal products containing hydrogen peroxide as the only active substance in these Product types must apply for product authorisation by 1 February 2017 in order to keep their biocidal products on the market after the active substance approval date, 1 February 2017.  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 February 2017 for a biocidal product containing this active substance, the biocidal product shall no longer be made available on the market after 31 July 2017. Disposal and use of existing stocks of the biocidal product may continue until 1 February 2018.  If the biocidal product has approval under the UK Control of Pesticides Regulations (COPR) its approval will be revoked.

For advice on biocidal products and on the registration of plant protection products, biocides or general chemicals, please contact JSC on +44 (0)1423 520245,
