What is BPR?


BPR is the Biocidal Product Regulation, which is a European legislation applying to all biocides (e.g. disinfectants and sanitisers).

The basic effect of BPR is that it requires all products classed as biocides (e.g. disinfectants and  sanitisers) to be authorised before they can be sold.

It is up to your business to ensure that your products have been authorised.

If your products aren’t authorised you will not be allowed to sell them. For Bleach-based products this came into effect January 1st 2019.

Key Points relating to BPR.

Specific authorisation will be required for all products in-order for them to remain on the market. No authorisation – No sale of goods!

To gain authorisation, a comprehensive information pack (dossier) must have be submitted for each product/family of products – including a list of all products within that family.

For bleach products, a dossier must have be submitted by 01/01/2019. After this date any products not included in the dossier must be withdrawn from the market within 365 days.
