Information on biocides

Information on biocides

Here you can find information on active substances for which an application for approval for a specific biocidal product-type has been submitted under the Biocidal Products Directive (Directive 98/8/EC) or the Biocidal Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 528/2012).

The data includes "existing" active substances included in the Review Programme, "new" active substances as well as Annex I substances that can be used in biocidal products eligible for simplified authorisation.

How to search

You can view the information on biocidal active substances in two ways:

per specific active substance and product-type combination (use the Search tab); and

as a summary of all product-type applications that have been submitted for a given active substance (Summary tab).

Using the Search tab, you can search with:

Active substance details: substance identifiers, product-type, candidate for substitution.

Approval data: for example the status of an application for approval, the assessment step in the approval process, validity of the approval granted.

Related authorised biocidal products (trade name of a biocidal product).

 

How the information is presented

The results table presents information on an active substance, such as approval start and end date, evaluating competent authority and approval or assessment status. The substance name is a link to the substance information page (Infocard) which summarises information on a substance from all regulatory contexts managed by ECHA.

More information on a specific active substance authorisation can be found in the factsheet. The factsheet holds details on the latest approval data, including relevant documents, related authorised biocidal products, and an overview of all the changes on the active substance approval. The active substance factsheet is accessible through the eye icon in the results table.

In the results table, the number of related authorised biocidal products can also be visible. The number represents the count of product clusters (groups of authorisations) containing the given active substance.

The Summary tab lists all product-type applications that have been submitted for a given active substance, approval has been granted or refused. The approval status of an active substance and product-type combination is described with an icon. Hovering your mouse over the icon, you can see the status of an application for approval, the assessment step if the approval process is ongoing, and you can access the active substance factsheet.

Export results

You can export the active substance results to the ECHA website standard formats (XLS, CSV and XML).

Due to a technical problem, which is being fixed, certain substance/product-type combinations are currently displayed as “Cancelled application” or “Withdrawn application".

See the correct status for those substance-product-type combinations
