  • Initialisation of consortia for inclusion of substance or product suppliers into the Art. 95 listing of Biocidal Products Regulation

    Brussels, 18th February 2015 - This communication is a follow up to interested companies’ requests regarding their inclusion into the suppliers listing as a substance/product supplier in accordance with Article 95 of the Biocidal Products Regulation. The due date for inclusion is 1st September 2015.

    According to ECHA, from 1st September 2015, a biocidal product consisting of, containing, or generating a relevant substance, cannot be made available on the EU market if the substance or product supplier is not included in the Article 95 listing for the product type(s) to which the product belongs. ReachCentrum and its technical partner ARCHE are working together to launch Consortia to support interested parties to stay on the EU market. In order to ensure this, we wish to support applications under Article 95 in the most cost effective and time efficient manner. 

    A selection of but non-exhaustive list of active substances is presented in the table below. Consortia can be built for products containing one of these active substances.
