Instalment 3 of 8 sees us work our way down the decision tree to look at treated articles and their consequent regulatory obligations.
Are you baffled by the BPR? The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) was introduced in 2013, but nearly 10 years on the industry is still in a transition phase where both the BPR and member state’s own national rules still apply.
We have created this decision tree to aid simplifying the process of identifying the most appropriate registration route for biocidal products.
It has been a busy summer season for the efficacy team with trials running across the UK and EU, and a number of yield assessments ongoing. We now turn our attention to analysing the data and producing the all important trial reports and biological assessment dossiers in support of your product registrations.
Field conditions have been challenging through the summer season with the exceptionally hot and dry weather across Europe but with good management, trials have continued and indeed product managers can use the extreme conditions to learn even more about their products.
At the end of August, Sabine Beulke and Emma Tilston were invited to attend the 10th European Modelling Workshop at York. The workshop provides a unique forum for representatives of pesticide producing companies, competent authorities and environmental fate risk assessors to learn about forthcoming improvements to the existing regulatory framework, work in progress and to propose where further improvement is needed.
