EUROPEAN UNION - The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) set September 1, 2015 as the compliance date for the implementation of Article 95 under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). The compliance date requires that suppliers of active substances and biocidal products must source their active substances from a company listed on the ECHA's Article 95 list, or must be included on the list themselves.
Article 95 provides the names of approved active substance suppliers and their countries, and product-type(s). Article 95 is applicable for all active substances placed on the market in biocidal products during the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) transitional period.
