  • National transitional measures

    National transitional measures

    At stage 6 of our Biocides decision tree we look at what is required if all of the biocides contained in (or generated by) your product aren’t approved under the EU BPR?

    The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) covers the registration for sale and use of biocidal products. These are products used to protect people, animals and materials against harmful pests such as insects or bacteria via the action of an active substance in the product.

    The EU BPR is an EU regulation, and as such it covers all EU member states. Not all biocidal products will fall under the remit of the BPR, or don’t yet. These may need to be registered or ‘notified’ under national registration routes – sometimes referred to as transitional rules.

  • Borderline Products

    Borderline Products

    As we reach the half-way point on the biocidal product decision tree (4/8). Our attention turns to borderline products.

    Borderline products are those which lie close to the boundary between multiple regulations. Examples include biocidal products, biocidal carriers, treated articles, cosmetic products, medical devices, medicinal products, herbal medicines or food supplements.

    These are complex healthcare products which require further investigation to determine which regulatory framework applies to their registration and are determined on a case-by-case basis by national competent authorities. They are called borderline products until their status has been decided.
