The guidance “Analysis of alternatives to biocidal active substances for applicants and authorities: a recommended framework guidance”, released on January 2023, helps companies and authorities to analyse alternatives to biocidal active substances that meet the substitution criteria under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). A new template to report the analysis is also available.
The guidance provides a flexible approach and can be adapted depending on the case and the needs of the actors performing the analysis.
If your active substance is a candidate for substitution, follow the guidance and include the analysis of alternatives as part of your application. Also, feel free to contact us in case you need help or support on this topic.
