As the review programme for active substances progresses slowly we focus our attention on the authorisation of biocide products in our third year in Brussels.

Our conference programme looks at the what, how and when of product authorisations with policy, practical advice and experience delivered from experts and practitioners. All packaged neatly into one busy and rewarding day.

Topics include a view from the Commission on policy, how product authorisations will be managed by ECHA and related legal issues surrounding the new Regulation. Practical advice will include presentations from industry representatives active in supporting their products across the Union. This will include challenges faced by both large and small organisations. Finally, two topics worthy of attention will be the management of data and ‘untangling’ treated articles!

This conference appeals to all stakeholders in the regulatory community from active substance manufacturers, formulating and retailing companies, regulatory authorities and the full range of service companies (law firms, consultants, laboratory service providers).
