New online tool for EU biocide applications

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched an online tool to help companies apply for approval for their biocide products, including non-crop pesticides, at either national or EU-level. The tool creates the structured summaries of product characteristics (SPCs) for both products and product families. The new SPC format will be mandatory for new product authorisations from December 2014 onwards, but it will not be compulsory for the renewal of a product approval. The new tool, called the SPC editor, will also enable applicants to amend existing SPCs.
