This two day workshop will help attendees to develop an
understanding of the regulatory approach to efficacy assessment
under the Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR). It will provide a
general overview of how to identify the correct efficacy data
requirements for a product and, in some cases, how this may be
different from the requirements for an active substance. It will
also note the UK experience of the interpretation of requirements
by other Member States. The course will then address how to
generate and present appropriate data to meet these requirements.
There will also be sections dedicated to some specific product
types (or groups of product types) for which significant interest
has already been expressed. There will be worked examples to help
attendees to recognise common problems and best practice, as well
as a number of discussion opportunities to allow attendees to raise
key issues and ask questions.
The course will cover:
The following topics will be covered:
- Identifying the label claims for a product and using the
guidance to find the correct data requirements for these
- Generating and presenting data to meet these requirements.
- Options when guidance is limited or unavailable.
- Product type (PT) specific considerations for: PT 1 - 5, PT 18

- Specific Common issues for other product types.
- Efficacy data requirements for product families.
- Efficacy data requirements to demonstrate that a co-formulant
