Following the end of the Transition Period on 31 December 2020, Great Britain is no longer part of the EU scheme for regulating biocides. Therefore, Great Britain has set their own rules that regulates biocides.
Active substance and product suppliers that were on the EU Article 95 List on 31 December 2020 have been included on the GB Article 95 List.
To remain on the GB Article 95 list after 31 December 2022 you must:
- resubmit your active substance dossier / data or letter of access to HSE; and
- confirm you are Established in the UK
Suppliers can complete both actions at the same time or independently, however both actions must be completed by 31 December 2022.
If you submit your active substance dossier by either the March 2021 or June 2021 deadlines for pending applications for active substance approval, you do not need to resubmit your dossier again for the Article 95 deadline. You must still complete the UK establishment action.
If you submit your active substance dossier in advance of the Article 95 deadline to support Letters of Access e.g. to product authorisation applicants and authorisation holders or new Article 95 suppliers, you do not need to resubmit your dossier again. You must still complete the UK establishment action.
