Biocidal products

A new regulation (EC No 1451/2007) rules the placing of biocidal products on
the market. The Regulation lays down detailed rules for the implementation of
the programme of work for the systematic examination of all active substances
already on the market on 14 May 2000 as active substances of biocidal products.
The list specifies, for each existing active substance included, the product
types in respect of which the substance will be examined under the review
programme, as well as the Rapporteur Member State designated to carry out the
evaluation.

A very detailed annex lists all concerned substances.
