Biocides Europe 2019

Get the latest updates in European biocidal regulations straight from the experts!

Biocides Europe focuses on key aspects of Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012 concerning the approval of active substances and authorisation of biocidal (or antimicrobial) products. Experts from authority and industry will share insights from European Commission and ECHA as well as their hands-on experience with implementation of the recent updates of the Biocidal Product Regulation (BPR).

Day one will focus on BPR procedures, authorisation and approval-related processes, the assessment of endocrine disrupting chemicals, and how the BPR has impacted companies throughout Europe. Day two will see two break-out sessions exploring biocides topics overlapping with other regulations, and the enforcement of biocides; as well as an expert panel discussion on sustainability of biocides and the circular economy, and testing and modelling.

knoell's Antje Gerloff-Elias, Regulatory Ecotoxicologist and Head of the QSAR Team, will join the experts and share her experience with using in silico tools to asses potential endocrine disrupting properties of biocidal active substances under the new EU Guidance document on day one.
