It might not always be so obvious, but biocides belong closely to our everyday lives. They are products we use regularly, for example disinfectants, preservatives, insecticides, rodenticides, or repellents which kill, deactivate, render harmless or prevent the action of harmful organisms. Right now, the Covid-19 pandemic is still bothering the mankind making the biocides even more important to us than ever before – each one of us has used hand sanitisers and other disinfectants during this time.

Biocides are important products, and we need them in our lives in various occasions. Biocides are regulated in the European Union (EU) by Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 on Concerning the Making Available on the Market and Use of Biocidal Products, often called simply Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). The EU BPR regulation requires many elements and aspects to consider and fulfill in order for the biocidal products to be complaint with the EU-legislation and allowed to be sold and used on the EU-markets. In addition, different national regulatory practices apply making the fulfillment of all the requirements even more time consuming and tedious.
