UK: Seminar on the New Biocidal Products Regulation

CRD will be holding an updated one-day seminar which will provide an overview of the new Biocidal Product Regulation that came into force on 1st September, 2013. This Regulation supersedes the Biocidal Products Directive (98/8/EC), in the UK.

The seminar is designed for companies and individuals who will be affected by, or have duties under, the new Regulation. The aim of the day will be to provide information about the new Regulation through a series of presentations. This will include a summary of the main aspects of the Regulation including a basic overview of product authorisation and active substance approvals and feedback on our experience of operating under the new regulation over the past 5 months.

This is a new European Union Regulation and many aspects of it are being developed in the light of experience. At the seminar, CRD will give the latest update on what we anticipate are the key implications of the new Regulation. There will be an opportunity for issues to be discussed, followed by Q&A session.
Topics of discussion

It is proposed that the event will cover topics including:

  1. Background to the introduction of EU BPR
  2. Roles and responsibilities including ECHA’s role
  3. EU BPR projects
  4. Working with CRD following implementation
  5. Authorisation processes
  6. Data requirements
  7. Scope
  8. Enforcement
  9. Experience since September 1st 2013
  10. Fees
