The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has published guidance documents to assist companies in complying the the Biocides Product Regulations (BPR).
The specific guidance is very detailed and covers such measurement-specific topics as substance identity (correct identification and nomenclature) and methods used for determining chemical and physical properties. These methods include spectroscopic data, particle size distribution, viscosity, solubility, the identification of impurities or by-products and an accurate measurement of the concentration of the active substance in the product, where the results of measurements of 5 representative production batches are required.
The guidance covers both active substances within the product and the biocidal product itself.
The UK Competent Authority, the Chemicals Regulatory Directorate (CRD) of the HSE, are holding 2 workshops on 22 and 24 October on Biocides Requirements under Regulation 528/2012.
