Legal EU biocide suppliers list issued
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has issued the definitive list of biocide suppliers that came into force on September 1st. As of this date, a biocidal product cannot be sold in the EU unless the relevant active ingredient supplier or product supplier is included in the list. The document forms part of the implementation of the EU biocidal products Regulation (528/2012), which covers a wide range of products, including non-crop pesticides. Termed the “Article 95 List”, it is a culmination of revisions and updates since the first list was issued a year ago. The ECHA expects to update it on a regular basis to reflect late applications, new market entrants and new ais.
