Registration Manual

The Registration Manual informs you about the application processes (including application and assessment process). The tool 'How to apply?' leads you through a series of questions to the relevant application type. Both manuals are only available in English.

Changes over February

The registration and evaluation of plant protection products and biocidal products is based on uniform principles. To take into account the developments originating from the ongoing process of European harmonisation and developments in science and technology,  the procedures for registration and the methodology for evaluation of products changes and improves continuously.

To make sure the changes are we documented, an updated version of the registration manual for biocidal products  is released once a month. The updates are planned at the beginning of each month.
In this new release, several points are amended / added. In the overview presented on this page, you will find an explanation and a designation of the exact location in the manual for each amendment or addition.
The former versions of the registration manuals are made available in the “archive” of manuals.
