First draft of EU biocide supplier list
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has invited companies to check its draft list of suppliers of biocidal active ingredients and products in the EU. The list has been introduced as part of the implementation of the EU biocidal products Regulation (528/2012), which covers non-crop pesticides. By September 2015, products cannot be sold or used unless the ai and the company concerned are on the list. Companies have until June 30th to request a modification to the draft. The ECHA plans to publish a formal list this summer.
