Active substances approved in 2022

A few days ago (15 November 2021), the Office for Chemicals of the Republic of Slovenia published a list of active substances that will be approved at the EU level in 2022.


What does this mean for your biocidal products?


If you want to sell a biocide that has been notified to the national register of biocidal products and does not contain any active substance other than just a substance that is now on the list of approved active substances, than you have to:

- apply for a permit (authorisation), or

- parallel mutual recognition of biocidal products.


In other words, you need to start the authorisation process of the biocidal product.


IMPORTANT: the application for authorisation or parallel mutual recognition must be submitted no later than the date of approval / inclusion of the active substance on the list.


If biocidal products contain more than one active substance, applications for authorisation shall be submitted no later than the date of approval of the last active substance for that product type.


What does this mean in practice?

If your product contains e.g. two active substances, one of which has just been approved and the date of approval of the other is not yet known, then you can continue to sell the product until the last active substance is on the list.


If you do not submit an application for authorisation or parallel mutual recognition, you must withdraw the biocidal product from the market within 6 months after the date of approval of the active substance.


The list of active substances approved in 2022 is available below:
