The Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) concerns the placing on the market and use of biocidal products, which are used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms, by the action of the active substances contained in the biocidal product. It entered into force on 1 September 2013. Being compliant with this Regulation is the legal prerequisite that allows marketing of your biocidal products in Europe or Switzerland, which has implemented similar provisions in the framework of the Ordinance on Biocidal Products (OBP). However, obtaining an authorisation for marketing your biocidal products is not the only concern; under the BPR also treated articles are regulated.
