Biocidal Products Committee (BPC)
The Biocidal Products Committee (BPC) was created from the Fecc Biocides Task Force and its work is focused on Biocidal Products and related topics.
The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) concerns the placing on the market and use of biocidal products, which are used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms like pests or bacteria, by the action of the active substances contained in the biocidal product.
The Fecc BPC experts monitor and give their contribution to the developments of Biocidal Products Regulation, its updates, guidance and any other related documents relevant for chemical distributors. They also contributes to the objective of harmonization of European market for biocidal products for implementation of the new mechanisms in BP assessment at EU level, i.e. harmonisation of risk assessment for active substances and co-formulants, union authorisation and product families.
As voice of biocidal products’ distributors at European level and beyond, the members of the Biocidal Products Committee strives to improve product availability and to provide relevant input to ensure that the same high standards for the protection of human health and the environment are applied across the European Union.
