New active substance approvals published – Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012

Permethrin (Product Type 8 & 18) and Tralopyril (Product Type 21) have been approved for use in biocidal products placed on the EU market and Approval Regulations published in the OJ.

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 01 April 2015 for Tralopyril and 01 May 2016 for Permethrin.

Companies wishing to continue to place biocidal products on the EU market containing Permethrin in the relevant product type must apply for product authorisation by 01 May 2016. 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 01 May 2016 for a biocidal product containing Permethrin, the biocidal product shall no longer be made available on the UK market after 28 October 2016; and use of existing stocks of the biocidal product may only continue until 01 May 2017.

As Tralopyril is a new active substance all products have to be Authorised through EU BPR before they can be placed onto the market.
