The Biocidal Products Committee (BPC) adopted four new opinions among which one regarding the non-approval of DBNPA in product-type 4. The active substance is known to have endocrine disrupting properties and as such cannot be approved for PT4 (food and feed area) defined in Annex V to the BPR as products “Used to impregnate materials which may enter into contact with food”.
The BPC also adopted three opinions supporting Union authorisation for:
- Octanoic Acid, Octanoic Acid & Decanoic Acid in product type 4.
- Permethrin & S-Methoprene in product type 18.
The Commission and the EU Member States will take the final decision on the Union authorisations and approval of active substances.
