In a series of seven articles published on the Arpal Group blog between July and September 2014, we provided ‘best practice’ advice to our customers and partners covering the new CLP Regulations for classifying and labelling hazardous chemicals, including most cleaning chemicals currently used in the workplace.
All seven articles were then reproduced as a free to download e-book.
An equally important piece of legislation is the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012). Introduced in 2012, it represented one of the most seismic pieces of legislation to affect the chemicals industry in decades.
In a new five-part technical series, we will examine the key aspects of the legislation, where it originated from and the impact it has had on the industry, at source and downstream.
BPR covers the supply, marketing and use of biocidal products used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms like pests or bacteria/viruses by the action of “Active Substances” (ingredients) contained in the biocidal product mixture.
The regulation aims to improve the way biocidal products are managed and marketed in the EU, while also ensuring a high level of protection for humans and the environment.
Published over the next five weeks, the series will cover the following topics:
- Part 1: History and legal framework
- Part 2: From directive to regulation
- Part 3: The regulation starts to bite
- Part 4: Authorisation of biocidal products
- Part 5: Implications for customers
We hope that our customers, distributors and end-users will find the advice provided to be very useful in ensuring proper compliance with the regulation.
