Authorisation Applications

Following EU approval of the active substance for a given product-type, biocidal products containing the active substance must be authorised in each Member State. Application for authorisation can be made for a biocidal product(s) or a biocidal product family.

Applications for product authorisation, renewal of an authorisation and changes to an authorisation must be submitted via the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) using the Register for Biocidal Products (R4BP).

Detailed guidance - Biocide Submission Manuals (BSM) and Guidance on Information Requirements - is provided by ECHA to assist applicants/industry. The manuals/guidance describes information and technical requirements, how to build IUCLID dossiers for the various Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR) applications and how to submit and manage those applications in the R4BP.
