New BPR amendments enter into force

The key aspects of the revised BPR include:

  • a new definition of the concept of biocidal product families to include product variants with similar levels of risk and efficacy in the same family;
  • clarification of a transitional period to allow new treated articles to be placed on the market as long as the application for approval of the active substance or product type used is made by 1 September 2016;
  • the introduction of the concept of ‘substance supplier’ and ‘product supplier’ in the framework of Article 95, which allows formulators to apply to be included on the Article 95 list, which will also be product type specific;
  • the extension of mandatory data sharing for review programme active substances, in the framework of Article 95, to include data on environmental fate and behaviour in addition to toxicological and ecotoxicological data (non-vertebrate);
  • the establishment of data protection periods for data submitted for products under simplified authorisation;
  • an extension of the role of the ECHA secretariat to provide support and assistance to the Member States with regards to control and enforcement activities.
