Biocide consortium - call of interest

The Biocidal Products Regulation gives producers, importers and distributors of biocidal products the opportunity to obtain authorisations through voluntary cooperation/consortia.

The aim of joining a cooperation is to reduce costs related to authority fees, tests, technical work and legal assistance. The principle is simple: Sharing costs among many companies will reduce costs for the single company. The reduction is significant even when there are only few members in a cooperation.

In addition to the benefit of shared authorisation costs, joining a consortium gives you the opportunity to obtain authorisation of own products based on the principle of the biocidal product family concept and the same biocidal products regulation. This enables you to maintain individual product authorisations independently.

As a leading service provider within the EU biocides area, DHI has successfully assisted industry in obtaining authorisation of biocidal products and biocidal product families. DHI also offers to facilitate consortia within the biocides area and to assist companies that decide to harvest the benefits of the consortia approach.      

Who should participate?
The consortium is targeted producers, distributors and formulators placing biocidal products on the market.

It will be of interest to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) within biocidal products and biocidal product families, particularly for products containing the following active substances within insecticides and disinfectants:
