P olish Biocidal Products (Polskie Produkty Biobójcze) exists to support companies in the challenges posed by the law regulating the chemical market. We specialize in biocidal products authorisation.

Due to the introduction of the Biocide Product Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012), the registration process for biocidal products has become expensive and time-consuming.

O ne of our goals is to solve the problem of high costs of placing biocidal products on EU markets. We create a registration path for our clients that provides them with great savings, security and convenience.

PPB carries out the entire registration process. We conduct registrations both in the national procedures and BPR procedures. We prepare and verify all required documentation. We look for the best market offers for research. We represent companies before national Competent Authorities (CA) and ECHA from the beginning to the end of the process, and we provide support in all matters related to the registration.

National procedures

A ccording to the Polish CA website: "The registration of biocidal products under the national procedure applies to products that contain existing active substances evaluated or under evaluation under Regulation No 1062/2014, of which at least one active substance has not yet been approved for a given product-type."
In the ongoing transition period, each national registration is only an introduction to registration under European procedures. We prepare biocidal product national authorisation for our clients always with the future BPR registrations in mind. We build national authorisations in such a way as to minimize future costs and ensure long "market life" of the product. We reduce expenses and build future security. We prepare registrations for every EU country, with the help of professional translators.

European procedures

R egistration of biocidal products according to the so-called European procedures is carried out following the principles described in detail in Regulation No. 528/2012, which applies in the EU from 1 September, 2013 onwards. European procedures concern biocidal products of which all active substances have been:

1. approved in a given product group (PT), i.e. passed a positive assessment in the review program or

2. are in Annex I to Regulation No 528/2012, i.e. they are active substances with low risk to human health and the environment

Registration of biocidal products - transitional period

O n 22 May, 2012, REGULATION (EU) NO 528/2012 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL was adopted on making available on the market and use of biocidal products. This regulation was intended to (Chapter I, Article 1, point 1):

"The purpose of this Regulation is to improve the functioning of the internal market through the harmonization of the rules on the making available on the market and the use of biocidal products, whilst ensuring a high level of protection of both human and animal health and the environment. The provisions of this Regulation are underpinned by the precautionary principle, the aim of which is to safeguard the health of humans, the health of animals and the environment. Particular attention shall be paid to the protection of vulnerable groups."

Regulation No 528/2012 is gradually abolishing national procedures for the market authorisation of biocidal products in all Member States. The national procedures cease to apply for products based on subsequent active substances, together with their inclusion on the list of approved active substances. New products, depending on their composition and the product types assigned, may require registration following European procedures. This obligation will soon cover all biocidal products, existing and new alike.
