Pre-submission meeting for biocidal products

Application under transitional legislation

During the preparation of your application file, you can request a meeting with our experts to discuss bottlenecks in this application file or the application procedure. The consultation option is called a pre-submission meeting (PSM).  In the pre-application phase, the Ctgb does not carry out assessments of files or parts of files.

Application under the BPR

Under the BPR, a pre-submission meeting for new applications (national and union applications, biocidal product family) is mandatory. This is possible after signing the eCA agreement, and at the latest 6 months before the intended submission date. See also: Instructions for submitting an application under the BPR. In addition, it is possible to request an extra PSM during the further preparation of the application file to discuss bottlenecks in this application file or questions about the application procedure.

You can request a pre-submission meeting via the application form below. A PSM must be requested at least 8 weeks before the desired date.
