European Biocidal Products Forum (EBPF)


Properties and uses


Early biocides included natural pyrethrum (from Chrysanthemum flowers), bitumen, camphor, vinegar and rose water. The modern definition of a biocide is a formulation containing one or more active substances that will – in very small doses – repel, control or destroy harmful organisms. Biocides are essential in our everyday lives for the purposes of prevention and protection. They are subject to their own set of regulations and should not be confused with medicinal drugs, used to treat the human body, or with plant protection products, used directly on crops.

Regulation


The main issues currently under discussion are related to the implementation of the Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC (BPD), its review programme and the ongoing revision of the BPD. The Forum is furthermore actively involved in the procedures for product authorisations after Annex I listing.
