HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) will be holding a one-day seminar on the regulation of biocidal products in the UK under the Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR).

During the morning session, members of CRD's Biocidal Products Authorisation team will deliver a series of presentations providing background information, practical advice and guidance on the application process and a range of application types using a theoretical product portfolio.

The interactive afternoon session will provide an opportunity to share business' experience of the benefits and burdens of the current regulatory scheme and also discuss the future opportunities and challenges facing the sector, accompanied with short presentations from industry and members of HSE's Policy and Enforcement teams.

Please note that due to high demand this is a repeat of the seminar that was held on 19th July 2017 and the majority of presentations will be identical.

The seminar will cover:

  • Informative presentations on a range of application types covered by the current EU legislation, the EU BPR:
    • National Authorisations (single products) and mutual recognition.
    • Union Authorisation.
    • Simplified Authorisation.
    • Same Biocidal Product authorisation.
    • Parallel Trade Permits.
  • Presentations from industry on their experiences of working within the BPR.
  • An opportunity to discuss your experiences on the benefits and burdens of the current regulatory environment under the BPR.
  • Share your views on how the UK leaving the European Union might affect existing and future biocidal product authorisations.
