Biocide Regulation & Guidelines

The use of technical biocides prevents the growth of undesirable microorganisms. These microorganisms can otherwise lead to a threat to human and animal health, enormous economic damage, product defects as well as hygiene problems. However, biocides can also pose hazards. Therefore, there are national and international legal regulations for the use of biocides. For the European Union, the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012 applies, which regulates the sale, use and placing on the market of biocidal products. Vink Chemicals ensure compliance with the applicable laws, directives and regulations, as well as the required applications, registrations and certifications of the biocidal products.

Are there legal provisions for the use of technical biocides?

Yes, the use of technical biocides is subject to national and international legal regulations. In the European Union, for example, the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012 regulates the sale, use and placing on the market of biocidal products. It is important to observe the specific regulations of the respective country in which the biocides are to be used.

What is the Biocide Regulation?

The Biocidal Products Regulation is an EU-wide legal instrument that regulates the marketing and use of biocidal products in the European Union. The regulation defines requirements for the authorization, placing on the market, labeling and use of biocidal products. The aim is to ensure a high level of protection for humans and the environment while harmonizing the internal market.

What must be observed when using biocides?

Vink Chemicals develops and produces biocides for industrial applications and distributes them worldwide. The prerequisite for the safe use of biocides is that the chemicals are used properly and in compliance with the applicable legal requirements. In the European Union, this is governed by the Biocidal ProductsRegulation (EU) No. 528/2012, which regulates the sale, use and placing on the market of biocidal products.
