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.
