BPR Part 4: There are five different types of biocidal product authorisations you can apply for and receive. You must meet at least one of the alternative processes below to have the biocidal products on a marketplace site.
#1 National BPR Authorisation and Mutual Recognition
National or Mutual Recognition BPR authorisation is needed when your product will be in either one market or is mutually recognised when your product will be in several countries.
#2 National Authorisation and Mutual Recognition Renewal
National authorisation and mutual recognition renewal are when you’ve already received a Member State Competent Authority (MSCA) and are seeking renewal.
#3 Union Authorisation
Union Authorisation is when BPR offers an alternative for companies that need EU sweeping authorisation in one-shot with all EU countries.
#4 Simple Authorisation
Simple Authorisation is when the biocidal product doesn’t have any substances of concern, and the company only needs to use the simplified procedure for the BPR authorisation.
#5 Same Biocidal Product Authorisation
The Same Biocidal Product Authorisation is when the biocidal product is identical to an ongoing BPR application either in the works or already approved.
Everyone who uses the dedicated BPR IT platform to register their biocidal products is now provided with IT tools to help businesses prepare and submit their application. ECHA has prepared a manual to assist users in creating and submitting their applications using R4PB3. Or users can also use the IUCLID to prepare their applications.
