Yesterday, the Slovene Chemicals Office updated a memo relating to:
- extraordinary authorizations for disinfectants with biocidal products already authorized in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 on the making available on the market and use of biocidal products ('BPR'); and
- authorizations under the notification procedure for as yet unapproved active substances.
Two changes are essential:
- In the simplified notification procedure for disinfectants containing ethanol at a concentration of more than 76% v / v (70% w / w) for PT1, more than 70% v / v (63% w / w) for PT2, and sodium hypochlorite in concentrations above 0.05%, no evidence of efficacy is required. For all other active substances, however, efficacy tests are again required.
- However, in the case of extraordinary authorizations, licenses are issued primarily for professional-institutional use (such as in health centers, police and civil protection units and in companies) and rarely for general use.
