Shaping a proper use of biocides

Learning from national examples to enhance environmental protection during the use-phase of biocides


Further action is required beyond active substance approval and product authorization of biocidal products to protect the environment. This action could be European legislation on the use-phase of certain biocides to shape their “proper use”. Whilst such piece of legislation is missing on EU level, countries have been implementing national measures. Within this document, we compiled examples from 13 different countries. The objective of this was (i) to provide examples for other Member States that would like to develop their national legislation further, and (ii) to provide exemplary legislation to the EU Commission to support drafting a harmonised European framework.
