The Health and Safety Commission have issued this Consultative Document in compliance with its duty to consult, under section 50(3) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, bodies, which appear to it appropriate before submitting proposals for the making of Regulations.
This Consultative Document seeks comments on the draft Biocidal Products (Amendment) Regulations 2006 that clarify the issues raised recently by the European Commission on some aspects of the implementation of the Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC (BPD).
Other amendments are necessary in order to deal with the effects of three Commission Regulations in switching on the provisions in the BPD for certain classes of products; and to update and correct other references in the existing Regulations.
