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 April
The registration and evaluation of biocidal products and plant protection 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. The former versions of the registration manuals are made available in the “archive” of manuals.
