Withdrawal of support for 3 active substances from the BPR Review Programme

12 March, 2018

The following 3 active substance/product-type combinations are no longer considered to be supported in the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) Review Programme:

  1. Troclosene sodium [CAS# 2893-78-9]
    Product type 12 (slimicides)
  2. Symclosene [CAS# 87-90-1]
    Product type 12 (slimicides)
  3. Sodium dichloroisocyanurate dehydrate [CAS# 51580-86-0]
    Product type 12 (slimicides)

ECHA has published an open invitation which allows interested companies to take over the role of participant for these active substance/product-type combinations. Interested companies have until 9 March 2019 to complete the notification procedure.

After this time, an application for evaluation of the active substance/product-type will still be possible, however this application would be as a new active substance and biocidal products containing the active substance would need to remain off the market until an approval decision was made.
