Information on biocides
ECHA is responsible for the publication of the list of relevant substances and the respective substance and product suppliers, in accordance with Article 95 of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), as amended by Regulation (EU) No 334/2014 of 11 March 2014. The purpose of this list is to "ensure the equal treatment of persons placing active substances on the market" (recital 8 of the Biocidal Products Regulation).
The suppliers on the Article 95 list include participants in the Review Programme, supporters of new active substances, who have submitted a dossier under Article 11 of the Biocidal Products Directive, BPD (Directive 98/8/EC) or under Article 7 of the BPR, submitters of product authorisation applications where the application includes an alternative active substance dossier (the so called ‘third party dossier'), as well as suppliers who submitted an application in accordance with Article 95(1) of the BPR and which has been found compliant by ECHA.
Since 1 September 2015, a biocidal product cannot be made available on the EU market unless either the substance supplier or the product supplier is included in the Article 95 list for the PT to which the product belongs.
ECHA updates the Article 95 list on a regular basis. The information on the list is accurate to the extent of ECHA's knowledge. For an entry on the Article 95 list to be corrected, the applicant needs to make the relevant change in R4BP3 (e.g. for Review Programme participants where the active substance application is not yet approved, and companies that are listed based on an application for Article 95 inclusion). Where this is not possible (for further details, see the Annex to the form ‘Request for corrections of entry on the Article 95 list’), companies have to request the change by submitting the afore-mentioned form through the ECHA contact forms. Depending on the complexity of the request for modification, the time to take it into account may vary.
In case of doubt, or for instructions on how to make a certain change in R4BP 3, please contact the ECHA helpdesk through the ECHA contact forms.
