Regulatory Compliance services for Biocides

At QACS we provide a range of solutions for Biocides in order to prove Product Efficacy and Biocidal Regulatory Compliance. Before placing biocidal products on the market authorization must be obtained. A dossier for a Biocide Product is compiled and submitted for approval to the Competent Authorities of each Member State.

Regulatory Guidance

According to Article 45 and Annex VIII to the CLP Regulation, there are certain obligations for biocidal products (as chemical mixtures) that are classified as hazardous on the basis of their health or physical effects. These include a properly generated UFI code on the label and the relevant PCN submission covering each Member State’s market placement. QACS team ensures compliance of your product by generating the UFI code and submitting the PCN dossier on behalf of your company.

Since biocidal products fall under the REACH and CLP Regulations for chemical products they need to be accompanied by a compliant and up-to-date Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Classification, label requirements and the need for PCN submission, all depend on the information provided in the product’s SDS. QACS team of experts is dedicated to the classification study and the compilation of the SDS for your product.

Biocidal label compliance with the provisions of BPR, CLP and national Regulations is crucial prior to market placement. QACS team provides label marketability services and support in order to ensure regulatory compliance for your product’s label.
