EU approval rules for identical biocides

The European Commission has issued new procedures for cases where an application is submitted for approval of a biocide product that is identical to one that is authorised or for which an application is already being evaluated. In such cases, the approval may be granted based on a single product evaluation and, if required, a comparative assessment. The procedures are laid down in the EU same biocidal products Regulation (414/2013), which will apply from September 1st. It forms part of the implementation of the new EU biocidal products Regulation (528/2012), which covers non-crop pesticides ( Agrow No 644, p 10).
