Product-type uses for non-approval under the BPR

The December CA meeting considered nine active substances across a range of product-type uses for non-approval under the EU Biocidal Products Regulation.

This is either because all participants in the review of these substances have discontinued their participation in the review programme, or no complete dossier was received within the specified time period. A number of companies indicated an interest in taking over the role of participant for one or more of these substances, but failed to submit a complete dossier or withdrew. Non-approval means that the active substances and the biocidal products containing them for the specified uses must be removed from the EU market. It is likely that a vote will be taken on the non-approval decision at the 14 March 2014 Standing Committee on Biocidal Products.

HSE is currently consulting via their substances web community regarding how these changes might affect industry.

The active substances and product types are listed below:

  • Bis[1-cyclohexyl-1,2-di(hydroxy-.kappa.O)diazeniumato(2-)]-copper product types 7, 9, 10
  • Glutaral product types   1, 13
  • Disilver oxide product types  11
  • 4,4-dimethyloxazolidine  product types   6, 12, 13
  • 2-Butanone, peroxide  product types   1, 2
  • Silver chloride  product types 3, 4, 5, 13
  • Pine ext.  product types  10
  • Triclosan  product types  2, 7, 9
  • 2-Phenoxyethanol  product types 3
