Authorisation

  • From 1 January 2021, Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) will put in place a regulatory framework for biocidal products. It will be similar to EU framework (EU BPR), but both will operate independently of each other.

  • All applications will be submitted to HSE as regulating authority

 

  • Biocidal product authorizations and active substance approvals that are valid in GB will remain valid until their normal expiry date. The authorization will need to be transferred to a company based in UK.

 

  • The authorization holder of biocidal actives and products will need to be established in the UK by 1st January 2022.

 

  • Respective data might have to be resubmitted to HSE. These data will be the same data or other information that you previously submitted to ECHA or other competent authorities.

 

  • Biocidal product or active substance applications still under evaluation after 31st December 2020 will be continued by HSE where possible to grant the authorization. Information supporting the original application has to be resubmitted for enabling HSE to complete the evaluation within 90 or 180 days depending on your situation.

  • A UK article 95 list for approved a.s. suppliers will be established similar to the EU Article 95 list. To stay on the UK Article 95 list  you will have to comply with the according requirements within 2 years’ time.

Plant Protection

  • According to CRD, the new laws to ensure the safe use of plant protection products will be similar to existing laws including compliance with regulations for Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs).

  • CEHTRA will continue to support its clients for their UK products.

Cosmetic products

  • Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) establishes independent regulatory rules for cosmetic products placed on the British market from January 1, 2021. 

 

  • The regulation remains very close to the Cosmetic Regulations (with a PIF, a safety report, a notification). The Responsible Person must be in Great Britain. By default, the importer is this RP. It is recommended to identify a RP who will be able to assume all the responsibilities for the safety of the product.

  • A notification will also have to be made on the UK portal.

  • These steps are valid for new products as well as for existing products entering Great Britain.

 

  • CEHTRA can assist cosmetics manufacturers in these procedures.
