The EU Commission has recently published the Implementing Regulations that approve the biocidal active substance “Active chlorine release from hypochlorous acid” with CAS number 7790-92-3, where the following dates have been stated for the submission of the BPR Dossiers:
→ PT1 (Regulation 2021/365): 1st July 2021
→ PT2, 3 and 4 (Regulation 2021/347): 1st July 2022
The fact that the deadline for the PT1 use is so early is because this active substance/product type combination was not included in the Review Programme so the products could not be authorised for this use under the transitional rules.
With regard to the other active substance/product type combinations (PT2, PT3 and PT4), there is still time to get national approvals for marketing under the transitional rules, so the products can be kept in the market while the BPR dossiers are being evaluated.
In the case of the PT1 products, the use cannot be marketed until the BPR approval is granted.
