Biocides Regulatory

Before you can place your biocidal products on the market, you must obtain authorisation. In addition, the active substances contained in the biocidal products must have been previously approved. We compile the product dossier containing the necessary information. The dossier is submitted for approval to the competent authorities of each Member State.

The authorisation of a biocidal product is specific to the company responsible for placing the product on the market.

The following documentation is necessary to register your products:

  • Product’s data – technical leaflet, marketing authorization holder, producers of active ingredients.
  • Identity of product – formula.
  • Physical and chemical properties – product specifications, MSDS, specification for all raw materials and AS.
