Webinar with Joan Castelló: Parallels between EU Regulations on feed additives & biocidal products

About This Webinar

The Biocidal Products Regulation (Regulation 528/2012), which entered into force in 2013, regulates the marketing and use of biocides, guaranteeing a high level of protection for human health and the environment. On the other hand, Regulation 1831/2003 concerns additives for use in animal nutrition.

A number of substances, due to their properties, have the potential to act as feed additives and as biocides. Several of these substances are already authorised for both uses in the EU, whereas others might require an authorisation for one or the other. Although the data packages for the registration of feed additives and biocides are substantially different, certain requirements on characterization and safety are common to both procedures. This could allow feed additive manufacturers to sell their products as biocides and capitalize on the benefits that this market offers.

What To Expect

This webinar will provide an overview of the Biocidal Products Regulation and the approval routes for biocidal active substances & biocidal products in the EU, focusing on the simplified authorisation procedure, and will examine the bridges between the registration procedures for biocides and feed additives.

We will also explore the substances that are currently authorised for use as both biocidal active substances and feed additives, and the opportunities this brings to producers in terms of expanding their market presence.

Format of the webinar: 40-45 minutes presentation, followed by 15-20 minutes for questions & answers.
