EU Regulatory Bulletin contents


On 10 May 2012, the Council of the European Union adopted the proposed regulation concerning the placing on the market and use of biocidal products ("BPR").

The Commission submitted its initial proposal back in June 2009 with the aim of replacing the current directive 98/8 concerning the placing of biocidal products on the market ("BPD"). The proposal makes fundamental changes to the legislative regime, as explained in a previous Bulletin. It is now scheduled to fully apply from 1 September 2013. However, in some cases, it is foreseen to apply as early as 1 September 2012.

Fieldfisher will be holding a BPR workshop at its Brussels' office on 5 June 2012. Guest speakers will include Pierre Choraine of the Commission and Cyril Jacquet of ECHA. The workshop is free of charge and limited places are still available, please register here.
