Dec. 18 EU: ECHA publishes a new guidance document concerning biocides

Posted Date: 
Wednesday, December 18, 2013

This news alert is brought to you by the ECHA.

The guidance has been developed by ECHA and the Member State competent authorities taking into account the elements described in the Technical Notes for Guidance for biocides under the former legislation – the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) – as well as the Technical Guidance on hazard assessment developed for REACH implementation and the guidance on the CLP Regulation

This guidance provides technical advice on how to perform the hazard and exposure assessment and risk characterisation for biocidal active substances and products with respect to human health risk assessment. 

This guidance will form part of the new biocides guidance structure for the BPR. Other Part B guidance documents are under development, such as Part B for Volume IV (Environment) which is foreseen for publication in 2014.
