Live Online: Biocides Efficacy Workshop
Please email your expression of interest
This workshop will be delivered over three morning
sessions, it will help you to develop an understanding of the
regulatory approach to efficacy assessment under the Biocidal
Product Regulation (BPR). They will provide a general overview of
how to identify the correct efficacy data requirements for a
product and, in some cases, how this may be different from the
requirements for an active substance. The course will then address
how to generate and present appropriate data to meet these
requirements. There will also be sections dedicated to some
specific product types (or groups of product types) for which
significant interest has already been expressed. There will be
worked examples of labels, justifications and data packages to help
attendees to recognise common problems and best practice, as well
as a number of discussion opportunities to allow attendees to raise
key issues and ask questions.
The course will cover:
- Identifying the label claims for a product and using the
guidance to find the correct data requirements for these
- Generating and presenting data to meet these
- Options when guidance is limited or
- Product type (PT) specific considerations and
requirements for: PT 1 - 5 (Disinfectants), PT 18 (Insecticides)
