About this webinar

With the EU's Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) coming into force this September, preparations are in full flow. While industry has some reservations on the provisions of the new regime, the webinar will provide a solid introduction to the BPR and inform companies how to make the best decisions regarding applications for approval of biocidal active substances and the authorisation of biocidal products.

The webinar will give an overview of industry's obligations and advice on effective authorisation strategies under the new regime. Further advice will be provided on the issue of articles treated with biocides, focusing on guidance being developed by the European Commission and EU member states.
