overview of the legal frame
Overview of the Legal frame

The relevant directive is

Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 February 1998 concerning the placing of biocidal products on the market.

The Directive regulates the placing of Biocidal products on the market in a two step procedure. The first step is evaluation of the active substances at EU level (Annex I entry) and the second step is product authorisation at member state level.

legal frame definitions
Legal frame - Definitions

A biocidal product is defined as (art. 2(1)(a)):

(a) Biocidal products

Active substances and preparations containing one or more active substances, put up in the form in which they are supplied to the user, intended to destroy, deter, render harmless, prevent the action of, or otherwise exert a controlling effect on any harmful organism by chemical or biological means.

An exhaustive list of 23 product types with an indicative set of descriptions within each type is given in Annex V.

legal frame definitions1
Legal frame - definitions

The substance definition is the same as in Directive 67/548/EEC, as amended by 92/32/EEC.

Substances are divided into new and existing active substances, defined by the date of implementation (14 May 2000).

New substances have to be evaluated before they can be placed on the market.

Existing substances go through a review programme and can stay on the market.

legal frame data requirements
Legal frame – data requirements

An Annex I entry is based on data. Requirements are given in the annexes of 98/8/EC and address both the substance and a product. Requirements are the same for new and existing substances.

Chemicals

  • Annexes IIA and IIB
  • Annexes IIIA and IIIB

Details in TNsG on Data Requirements

Micro-organisms incl. viruses and fungi

  • Directive 50/2006/EC amending Annexes IVA & IVB

Dossier Preparation and Submission

dossier preparation and submission
Dossier preparation and submission
  • A complete dossier has 4 levels:
    • Level I: overall summary and assessment
    • Level II: risk assessment
    • Level III: ‘robust’ study summaries of the test reports
    • Level IV: test reports
  • The Rapporteur has all 4 levels – the other member states have levels 1, 2 and 3

To ensure transparancy and harmonise the implementation

slide21

Evaluation: Completeness check of dossier by RMS

The Rapporteur MS shall verify the dossierconcerning the acceptability within 3 month.

In difficult cases the period shall be prolonged up to a maximum of 3 month.

Within 1 month after the acceptance of the dossier the participant forwards the summary dossier to COM and to the other MSs.

If aparticipant fails to submit the data within the deadline (also fees),he will beexcluded form the programme. A new deadline may be established only under exceptional circumstances.

slide22

Evaluation of dossiers by the RMS

The CA of the RMS shall carry out the

evaluation and prepare an evaluation report

12 months

  • Additional information from the participant(or third parties)
  • shall only be taken into account, if
  • the participant informed the RMS at dossier submission
  • the data is submitted at latest 3 month before the end of evaluation
  • the data is more reliable
  • the result changes the outcome of the recommendation
slide23

Evaluation by the RMS

  • The RMS shall submit the “competent authority report”to COM, MSs and the applicant which includes a recommendation either:
  • to include the existing active substancein Annex I, IAor IB to Directive 98/8/EC stating the conditions forinclusion, or
  • not to include the substance in Annex I,IA or IB, mentioning the reasons for the non-inclusion, or
  • in the case RMS request additional information deadline is established by RMS participants may submit updated summary dossiers to COM and MSs
slide24

Evaluation: Commission procedures

  • COM gives 90 days to the other Member States and the applicant to comment the “competent authority report”.COM shall organise, when necessary, meetings with experts.
  • COM may consult the appropriateScientific Committee(s).
  • After the commenting period COM prepares
  • a draft for decisionto include the substances in Annex I, IA or IB to Dir. 98/8/EC, setting out the conditions, or
  • a draft for decision addressed to the MS not to include the substance in Annex I, IA or IB, mentioning the reasons for non-inclusion, requesting MS to cancel existing authorisations/registrations for biocidal products containing the substance

evaluation methodology
Evaluation - Methodology
  • The methodology for the evaluation is described in the Technical Notes for Guidance (TNsGs) and the TGD on Risk Assessment (including Emission Scenario Documents)
  • There are some gaps and by applying the TNsGs changes have been suggested / agreed.
evaluation methodology developments
Evaluation – Methodology developments
  • There are difficult areas: e.g. chemical identity, pheromones (guidance document), natural substances (guidance document), read across of data, leaching rates for PT08 (workshop) and 21
  • Methodology is translated from other areas: Existing Substances Regulation and Plant Protection Products
  • Some remaining difficult issues: e.g. efficacy testing, metabolites
evaluation statistics
Evaluation - Statistics
  • Experience from the first list was that most RMS took 6 months to check completeness.
  • Most dossiers took more than 12 months to evaluate: in Aug. 2006:
    • 9 (of 13) reports from RMS under PT 14
    • 16 (of 40) reports from RMS for PT08
  • “stop the clock”
    • Unclear chemical identity
    • Data gaps
evaluation peer review by the other member states
Evaluation Peer review by the other member states
  • Peer review by the other member states:
    • Documents level I, II and III are circulated
    • 90 day commenting period for OMS, applicant and other interested parties (only public report). Comments should be submitted in writing.
    • The Rapporteur prepares a response-to-comments table, indicating (dis)agreement with the comments and actions.
    • Information is circulated via CIRCA
discussions at tm and ca levels peer review by the other member states
Discussions at TM and CA levels Peer review by the other member states
  • Outstanding issues from the response-to-comments are discussed at a technical meeting.
  • The technical meetings are prepared, chaired and followed-up by the ECB
  • All member states and the applicants are invited to the TMs
discussions at tm and ca levels peer review by the other member states1
Discussions at TM and CA levels Peer review by the other member states
  • Provides consistency
  • Provides common solutions
  • Provides a forum for discussion
  • Several meetings may be needed
discussions at tm and ca levels c l
Discussions at TM and CA levelsC&L
  • The Classification and labelling is performed in the TC C&L (Technical Committee for classification and labelling).
discussions at tm and ca levels
Discussions at TM and CA levels
  • TM reports to the Competent Authorities meeting and the minutes of the TMs are distributed.
  • Update of the Competent Authority Report reflecting outcome of discussions presented for the CAs.
  • The entry of a substance onto Annex I is done via a voting committee.
  • The legal text is a directive.
annex i inclusion
Annex I inclusion
  • So is it possible at all?
    • Large dossier / extensive requirements
    • Methodology well described, but gaps are still found
    • 25 MS plus applicant plus EEA (NO, ICE, CH) to discuss and reach a decision
annex i inclusion1
Annex I inclusion
  • Discussion on Sulfuryl fluoride was finished at TMI06, and voted onto Annex I at the 22nd CA meeting (Sep. 2006)
  • The next substances were up for final discussion at TM III 06, and Annex I entry in 2007.
annex i inclusion2
Annex I inclusion
  • Annex I inclusion is for a maximum of 10 years (Art. 10 / BPD)
  • Comparative assessment
  • Art. 14 / BPD New information

The work under the BPD does not stop with Annex I inclusion.

next step authorisation of products
Next step: Authorisation of products
  • The BPD is a two-step Directive.
  • The first step is Annex I inclusion under the responsibility of the Commission
  • The second step is product authorisation under the responsibility of the Member States.
  • Products can be authorised when they contain active substances listed in Annex I
next step authorisation of products1
Next step: Authorisation of products
  • Product authorisation is based on the common principles in Annex VI
  • Product authorisations will be mutually recognised according to Art. 4(1) of the BPD
