Fees and charges for biocidal products
The fees and charges for an application for authorisation of a biocidal product depend on the status of the active substances in Europe and the specific type of application. Applications under transitional legislation are subject to the Ctgb Tariffs Decree. For applications under the Regulation, fees and charges must often be paid to ECHA as well. Consequently, the fees and charges are subject to both the Ctgb Tariffs Decree and the Implementing Regulation of ECHA.
Small and medium-sized enterprises established in the European Union can benefit from reduced fees under Biocidal Products Regulation, depending on their size and provided that certain conditions are met. In order to do this, companies need to submit the documentary evidence proving their entitlement to such reduction in advance of the actual application. The conditions and the instructions on how to submit the documentation for the SME check are described in more detail on the ECHA website.
