Changes over June

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 wel 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.

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.
