Enforcement Forum agrees on scope of checks for consumer biocide products in 2022

The BPR Subgroup of the Enforcement Forum agreed that inspections will focus on controls of biocidal products for the presence of approved and non-approved active substances. The controls will be wide covering all types of biocidal product types and include both products already authorized under the BPR as well as products covered by pieces of national biocides legislation (i.e. transitional measures under Article 89 of BPR). Checks in the project may also include control labelling of biocides, online advertising, verifying that the active substance in the product is provided by an approved supplier, verifying active substances by chemical analysis, and targeted controls of disinfectants.
