BPC supports approval of DBNPA for PT4

August 2, 2018

On 29 June 2018, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced that its Biocidal Product Committee (BPC) supports the approval of DBNPA (CAS 10222-01-2) as a disinfectant for Product Type (PT) 4 “Food and feed area”. Based on the new requirements for identifying endocrine disruptors, the evaluating Member State, Denmark, still needs to assess whether DBNPA meets the new criteria for endocrine-disrupting properties before the BPC may officially adopt this opinion.

Dow Microbial Control has supported DBNPA since the submission of the active substance dossiers under the Biocidal Product Directive many years ago, contributing to the positive opinion of the BPC for PT 4. Dow Microbial Control continues to support the remaining active substance dossiers for PTs 2 (Disinfectants and algaecides not intended for direct application to humans or animals), 6 (Preservatives for products during storage), 11 (Preservatives for liquid-cooling and processing systems), 12 (Slimicides) and 13 (Working or cutting fluid preservatives) for which BPC approvals are expected in the coming years.
