Call for Expression of Interest: Initialization of a consortium for Biocidal product(s) containing Sodium Hypochlorite (EC: 231-668-3, CAS: 7681-52-9) as active substance

June 2014

ReachCentrum and ARCHE intend to bring together interested parties to collaborate in the set-up of a consortium-like arrangement to prepare the dossier for authorization of biocidal products containing Sodium Hypochlorite.

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. 

ReachCentrum, together with ARCHE, intends to bring together all interested parties to collaborate in the set-up of a consortium-like arrangement. The aim is to provide producers, distributors and formulators interested in placing biocidal products on the market for certain PTs and containing the active ingredient sodium hypochlorite, with an environment in which they can cooperate to meet their obligations under the legislation for what concerns product authorisation.

Other companies who, aside from those who have already made their interest known, are willing to join the consortium are kindly requested to express their interest at the latest by July 30, 2014.
