Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, also known as the Biocidal Products Regulation, requires that only active ingredients from sources listed under Article 95 be used in Europe for the manufacture of biocidal products, such as disinfectants
. BCD Chemie trades a wide range of these active ingredients and is even an Art. 95 listed source for various alcohols.
Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 (BPR, Biocidal Products Regulation) regulates the use and provision of biocidal products on the market in the European Union. In this process, the active ingredients are first subjected to an evaluation, and subsequently the biocidal products must be authorised.
Since 1 September 2015, only biocidal products containing active ingredients supplied by companies that have submitted an active ingredient dossier or have access to the dossier by means of a letter of access may be placed on the market in the European Union.
For this reason, BCD Chemie is a member of the ASD Consortium Alcohol Task Force and supports, for example, the active ingredient ethanol for product types 1, 2 and 4 under the BPR.
