Orphan biocidal product authorisations and applications: Member States will soon contact companies
Helsinki, 20 May 2015 – To address one of the issues resulting from the migration between R4BP2 and R4BP 3, Member States will soon contact all companies with orphan existing authorisations and on-going applications for biocidal products. Orphan authorisations are those for which the unique identifier of the future authorisation holder is missing from the Registry for Biocidal Products (R4BP 3).
Member States are asked to provide ECHA with updated information regarding all of these orphans in the database by 29 May 2015. Member State competent authorities will therefore contact the concerned companies directly.
Once the currently missing information is available, ECHA will correct the entries in the database. This is expected to be completed by mid-June 2015.
