Biocides Registration Groups

Each of the three substances for which approval as an active substance is sought is supported by a specific registration group. These groups have generated and submitted technical dossiers for each substance. Under the Biocidal Products Regulation, only manufacturers and importers of the active substance who have submitted a full dossier or a letter of access to a dossier may be listed on the ECHA list of approved active subtsances and suppliers (Article 95 list). After 1st September 2015, only active substances obtained from a listed supplier may be placed on the Union market.

If you formulate biocidal products from chlorine, sodium hypochlorite or calcium hypochlorite and your manufacturer is not listed here, we would suggest that you contact them to confirm that they are supporting the active substance approval process. Some affiliates associated to the below listed companies are also supporting the process.
