Biocidal products are all substances or mixtures consisting of, containing or generating one or more active substances which are used to prevent or control various types of harmful or undesired organisms with the intention of destroying, deterring, rendering harmless, preventing the action of, or otherwise exerting a controlling effect on harmful organism by any means other than mere physical or mechanical action.

Biocidal products are controlled by the Biocidal Products Directive (EU) No 528/2012, which covers 23 different product types from disinfectants to embalming fluids. Many of the biocidal active substances can be found in wide range of products, all of which have to be considered in the assessment / regulatory process. Here are stated 4 main groups of the biocidal products:

  • Disinfectants and general biocidal products
  • Preservatives
  • Pest control
  • Other biocidal products

Biocides are subject to authorization. According the new biocide regulation biocidal products may only contain ingredients that are listed in the ECHA register.

InterBioTox is your key associate in supporting your company in complying with Biocidal regulation. We provide a complete testing portfolio which substantially enables to help you with the assessment of biocides in order to comply with the regulation No 528/2012 and Guidance on the Biocidal Products Regulation prepared by ECHA (Volume I – V).
