Upcoming Deadlines to Apply for Union Authorisation of Biocidal Products in 2016

Abstract: In 2016, several legal deadlines are relevant for applying for Union Authorisation of biocidal products. If the relevant Union Authorisation applications are not submitted by the deadline, the products could not be placed on the EU market until it is authorised. Enterprises should act as soon as possible in order to reduce the risk of punishment and expand the trade in EU market.

Union Authorisation(UA) is a new application type under Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012). It allows companies to place their biocidal products on the market throughout the entire EU, without the need to obtain a specific National Authorisation. Compared with the National Authorisation and mutual recognition, Union Authorisation can reduce administrative burden, harmonisation across EU and ease of access to the EU market which make it much attractive to industry.

In 2016, several legal deadlines are relevant for applying for Union Authorisation of biocidal products. The deadlines of 11 substance-specific substance combinations to apply for Union Authorisation can be found in table 2. Normally, it shall take at least one year to prepare the application materials for Union Authorisation. Enterprises should act as soon as possible in order to reduce the risk of punishment and expand the trade in EU market.
