Opening with a regulatory update from ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, TSGE Forum’s annual conference will focus on the experience and challenges of SMEs in respect to Mutual Recognition procedures and further progress made in active substance approvals.

Delegates will also hear about the latest developments from member state competent authority Ctgb, as well as learn from other experts on topics including industry experience with union authorisation, risk assessments of disinfection by-products & insecticides products, and BPR dossier project management & submission.

Targeted at all stakeholders in the biocides industry from regulatory compliance service providers and manufacturers to suppliers and distributors, the conference is ideal for meeting a wide range of EU regulators, experts and industry participants from across Europe.

The conference also provides plenty of networking opportunities, including a drinks reception.
