This Practice Note provides a snapshot of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) EU No 528/2012. It provides details on the objective and scope of the BPR and key definitions such as ‘active substances’, ‘biocidal product’, and ‘harmful organism’. It also provides guidance on approvals for active substances including information on the Article 95 list and exclusion criteria, as well as renewal and review of active substance approvals. The Practice Note also covers authorisation of products containing biocides (biocidal products), derogations, treated articles and data sharing. The final section provides details on how, following Brexit, the retained BPR in Great Britain differs from the EU BPR.
