EU biocide suppliers urged to act now to gain listing
Companies wishing to be included in the new list of biocide suppliers in the EU should not underestimate the preparation time needed, especially for data-sharing negotiations. The warning comes from Hugues Kenigswald of the biocides assessment unit at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). The first official version of the list was published in September (see this issue). From September 1st 2015, biocide products, including non-crop pesticides, can only be sold if the active ingredient supplier or product supplier is on the list.
