Biocide: Authorisation of Sodium Chloride

In accordance with art. 95 of the BPR, a substance supplier or product supplier needs to be included in the list of authorised suppliers by September 1st, 2015. Amendment to the BPR introduced by Regulation n. 334/2014 also allows product suppliers to apply to be included in the art. 95 list. Sodium Chloride is concerned as it is used to generate active chlorine via electrolysis for water disinfection, e.g. swimming pool water. 
A pre-consortium phase to organise the joint dossier for Sodium Chloride generating active chlorine is currently under preparation, in order, for suppliers, to be listed in Art. 95 for the product-types 1 to 5, and 11. The grouping of companies interested in the authorisation procedure of Biocidal Products is also under preparation.
The signing of pre-Consortium agreement will take place in early March 2015, once the cost of the letters of access is known. Therefore, it is still time for companies (salt manufacturers or importers, but also electrolysis device manufacturers and users of salt for biocidal purposes) to join the pre-Consortium and state their interest, by contacting Ms. Leondina Della Pietra (lpd@reachcentrum.eu) and Ms. Sandrine Lauret (Sandrine.lauret@eusalt.com).
Next steps will be:

  • February 24th 2015: negotiating Letter of Access (with Aqualution, Eurochlor, and European Commission)
  • March 2015: collecting data
  • March 2015: signing pre-Consortium agreement
  • May 30th 2015: submitting dossier

Brussels, June 27, 2014 - A recent survey conducted by ReachCentrum and its technical service partner ARCHE has indicated that at least ten companies are actively interested in joining forces under the auspices of a voluntary agreement to prepare a dossier for product authorisation under the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) 528/2012 for those products containing the active substance sodium hypochlorite.
