Product authorisation under the BPR

The Ctgb regularly publishes Evaluation Manuals, which are technical work instructions developed mainly for internal use. The Evaluation Manual describes the assessment framework used by the Ctgb for the assessment of applications for authorization of biocidal products. Data requirements, risk assessment methodologies and approval criteria are discussed in the Evaluation Manual, which combines the collective context of laws and regulations, policies, and the guidance documents that describe the methodology for assessment of biocidal products.

The Evaluation Manual contains:

  1. General introduction
  2. European evaluation framework v3.7
  3. National framework v3.2 on requirements related to Dutch specific elements
  4. Product authorisations under transitional legislation v3.2

The manuals are periodically updated in accordance with new legislation and guidances. They are published as PDF-files in English. In these versions of the Evaluation Manual a change log is added in which the adjustments in comparison to the previous version are disclosed. In the manuals reference is made to external sources by hyperlinks.
