Dear Biocides active substances web community member Under the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR), if the evaluating Competent Authority concludes in its evaluation that an active substance meets the criteria for substitution of Article 10 (1) of EU BPR, before submitting its opinion to the Commission on the approval or renewal of the approval of an active substance, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) will make publicly available information on the active substances identified as potential candidates for substitution. Public consultations have been launched by ECHA for the following five active substances: Azoxystrobin (CAS 131860-33-8) for product-type 7, 9, 10; Chlorophene (CAS 120-32-1) for product-type 2, 3; d-Allethrin (CAS 231937-89-6) for product-type 18; esbiothrin/ d-trans-allethrin 75/25 (CAS 260359-57-7) for product-type 18; PHMB (1415; 4.7) i.e. Polyhexamethylene biguanide with a mean number-average molecular weight (Mn) of 1415 and a mean polydispersity (PDI) of 4.7 (CAS 32289-58-0 and CAS 1802181-67-4) for product-type 1, 2, 4, 5. These consultations are open until 10 April 2017. The information received, if not confidential, will be published during these public consultations. Please respond direct to ECHA and not to HSE. When the consultation period is over, ECHA will process the information received and will take account of the information when finalising the opinion on the above substances in the Biocidal Products Committee (BPC). I hope this is useful. Kind regards Garry Wiles Biocides web community manager
