Application under regulation

If all active substance(s) for the relevant product type (PT) are included on the Union list of approved active substances, or if they are included in Annex I of the Regulation, the application for your product must be submitted under the Regulation. The Regulation also applies to biocidal products with a new active substance or with active substances for which a non-inclusion decision was made for the relevant PTs.

For biocidal products with active substances that are still pending in the European review programme, transitional legislation applies.

Special attention is required for the regulatory status of food or feed used as repellents or attractants. An interpretation of the provisions of Article 2(5)a of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 is described in a note for guidance provided by the European Commission.
