Transitional Guidance Documents: ECHA publishes three Transitional Guidance documents concerning biocides

This news update on Transitional Guidance Documents is brought to you by ECHA.



In addition, the biocides guidance webpages are updated to provide information on the Transitional Guidance documents and updated information on the new guidance structure.


Helsinki, 28 May 2014 – The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published three Transitional Guidance documents for the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR):


    • Efficacy Assessment for Product Type 21 Antifouling Products


    • Efficacy Assessment for Preservatives


    • Mixture toxicity assessment for biocidal products for the environment



These Transitional Guidance documents have been developed by ECHA and the Member States competent authorities (MSCAs) taking into account the elements described in the Technical Notes for Guidance for Biocides under the former legislation – the Biocidal Products Directive (BPD). Three documents have been published of which two provide technical advice on how to perform efficacy assessments and the third document provides technical advice on how to perform the mixture toxicity assessment on biocidal products with respect to the environment.
