Format of the day / Target Audience
The seminar is designed for individuals who will be involved in preparing and submitting biocide product authorisation applications to CRD. The aim of the day will be to provide training and updated information through a series of presentations.
Topics of discussion
It is proposed that the event will cover topics including:
- Transitional arrangement from Control of Pesticides Regulations (COPR) to UK Biocidal Products Regulations (implementing the Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC). How does your product move from being regulated under COPR to being regulated under the Directive? How are your products affected if they have not been previously been subject to regulation now that they fall within the scope of the Biocidal Products Directive?
- What an applicant needs to submit and when, including costs and timescales. How CRD will process these applications.
- Common problems with applications submitted to CRD and how to prevent them.
- Sources of information - Website walk through: Outline of useful sites including HSE’s biocides pages and the EU new CIRCABC (Communication and Information Resource Centre for Administrations, Businesses and Citizens site). What information is available and how can it help applicants.
- Developments emerging from PAMRFG (The Product Authorisation and Mutual Recognition Facilitation Group) – What this means for your products in the UK.
- Latest EU developments with the introduction of EU Biocidal Products Regulation, which comes into force in September 2013. An initial outline of significant changes to come.
A programme and full details of the day are available on the events section of the CRD website www.pesticides.gov.uk (please note we reserve the right to amend the content if appropriate, without prior notification).
