Study launched on EU biocide rules

Commission calls for stakeholder input to review of implementation, possible future changes

Stakeholders in the EU biocides market have been invited to contribute to a study on existing biocide rules ordered by the European commission.  Under the 1998 biocides directive all products not defended by manufacturers had to be removed from the market by 1 September this year.  The study, which is to be carried out by an external consultant, marks the first step towards an official review of the directive.  The study will also consider whether and how the directive should be amended.  See biocides directive study consultation.
