Biocidal products are regulated in the European Union by the Biocidal Product Regulation 528/2012 (BPR). The BPR requires rigorous evaluation of biocidal active substances and biocidal products, ensuring that by placing a product on the market no unacceptable risk is posed to human health, animals or the environment. Examples of biocidal products include: antifouling products, disinfectants, rodenticides, insecticides, slimicides, fungicides and preservatives.
