Submitting and presenting a product dossier under the Biocidal Product Regulation EC 528/2012 (BPR) is complex, involving key deadlines, priorities, resources and negotiations. Our 2018 programme will help guide you through this process, examining what authorities are expecting in the BPR dossier and how you can negotiate access to substance data.

Once a biocide active substance has been given a positive opinion for approval by the Biocidal Product Committee, companies have around 20 to 24 months to develop and submit the biocidal product dossier as an IUCLID document via the European platform R4BP. It is crucial that companies understand the timelines, priorities and resources required to submit information at the right time, in the right manner. Join our expert speakers, who will be sharing their knowledge of the process and procedure for submitting dossiers as well as providing examples to illustrate how companies can avoid costly errors.
