Because of their inherent properties, biocidal products can cause toxic or other harm to non-target organisms, humans, pets, and the environment.
Regulation (EU) 528/2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products has been in force in the European Union since September 1st, 2013. Also called the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), it replaces the EU Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC.
As outlined in article 1, the objective of the BPR is to harmonize the biocidal product's rules within the EU and to protect both public health and the environment.
Regulation (EU) 1062/2014 on the work programme for the systematic examination of all existing active substances contained in biocidal products referred to in Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 applies when the European Chemicals Agency must examine submitted active substances via a systematic process.
