Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides

Types of applications for biocidal products

Applications can be submitted under the Regulation or under transitional legislation. This choice is determined by the status of the active substance(s) in the product for which authorisation is sought. If all active substance(s) for the relevant product type (PT) are included on the Union list of approved active substances, or if they are included in Annex I of the Regulation, the application for your product must be submitted under the Regulation. The Regulation also applies to biocidal products with a new active substance or with active substances for which a non-inclusion decision was made for the relevant PTs. For biocidal products with active substances that are still pending in the European review programme, transitional legislation applies. With the aid of the decision tree you can determine which legislation is relevant for your application.
