Highlights of the BPC meeting in December

The Biocidal Product Committee (BPC) has met for the last time in 2021 from 29 November to 3 December.


The Biocidal Product Committee (BPC) meeting resulted in the adoption of 16 opinions: 10 on the approval of active substances, two on EU approval and four on applications from the European Commission.



We would like to draw your attention in particular to two approvals:

  1. Alkyl (C12-16) dimethylbenzylammonium chloride for use in disinfectants for personal hygiene (product-type 1) and for surfaces, materials etc. (product-type 2)
  2. Didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDAC) for product-types 1 and 2 Product-types 3 and 4 for these two active substances were already approved last summer.

Now it is time to build your Biocidal Product Families (BPF) - the knoell Biocides team will be pleased to support you - just contact them by email
