    Consortia for Biocidal Products Containing Certain Active Substances.

    Brussels, October 23, 2019 - ERM and ReachCentrum are collecting interest in the setting up of consortia.  These consortia will facilitate cooperation between producers, distributors and formulators wishing to authorise biocidal products on the EU market according to the rules and procedures required by the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU 528/2012 –the ‘BPR’).

    ReachCentrum is the chemical industry recognised expert in the delivery of consortium management services.  ERM is a leading global provider of environmental, health, safety, regulatory and sustainability related services, with many years of biocide experience helping companies approve active substances and biocidal products in a wide range of chemistries and product types.  Together, they have experts in all disciplines with skills to provide scientific and regulatory knowledge to help gain the required authorisations.

    From launching this call of interest to final product authorisation, ERM and ReachCentrum will coordinate all aspects of the proposed consortia and provide the technical and regulatory support necessary to ensure consortia members achieve their goals.

    ERM and ReachCentrum are planning to launch consortia to support biocidal products containing the following active substances, within the listed Product Types.  Biocidal Product Committee decisions to approve these active substances are likely during 2020 meaning that deadlines to submit applications for product authorisation in EU Member States will likely occur during 2022.

    In case you would be interested in joining one of these biocidal product consortia, we kindly ask you to express your interest by 31st December 2019.
