Upgrade of ECHA’s biocide application system

A major upgrade has been made to the online system for submitting applications for EU approval of biocides, including non-crop pesticides. The new version of the central hub, named R4BP 3.2, offers enhanced usability, says the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). Improvements include harmonised and simplified submission of applications; and consolidated renewals for authorisations that were originally granted as part of the mutual recognition system. The new version also integrates data present in the summary of product characteristics (SPC). This will require companies and authorities to use the new SPC format supported by the ECHA’s new SPC editor.
