Commission proposal to amend the EU Biocides Regulation - invitation to comment

The EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 will replace the current Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC on 1 September 2013. Since the Regulation was agreed in late 2011, a number of technical problems have come to light with the text. The European Commission is therefore proposing an amending Regulation to correct these errors as soon as possible after the Regulation takes effect. You are invited to let us have your comments on the Commission's proposal, either in general terms or on specific issues, or both, by 30 September, so we can take them into account before negotiations resume in October as anticipated. This document gives the details of the Commission's proposal and sets out how you can let us have your comments.
