Organiser Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS)
Location Novotel Manchester Centre Hotel, 21 Dickinson Street, Manchester, M1 4LX

This course was launched in 2017 and provides participants with an overview of the EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). At the end of this one-day course participants will have a thorough understanding of the practical implications for EU manufacturers and importers of biocidal products and articles treated with biocidal products, and how to apply it to their own area of work.

  • understand the background and fundamentals of the BPR as it replaces the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD)
  • understand the terminology and definitions, and how biocidal products are defined in terms of product types
  • understand the obligations of suppliers of biocidal products, and articles treated with biocidal products, across the EU including active substance approval and Article 95 requirements
  • understand the active substance approval process and the product authorisation process, with respect to Union Authorisations and National Authorisations covering key steps involved, timelines and expected costs
  • understand the structure and data requirements for a biocidal product dossier, and the key IT tools used for dossier submission such as IUCLID 6, SPC Editor 2.0 and R4BP 3
  • understand the special considerations available for SME’s (Small to Medium Sized Enterprises) and the possibilities within the Biocidal Product Family concept
