Certificates of Exemption for existing biocidal products

This table contains details of the Certificates of Exemption issued for existing products that are currently being evaluated under GB Biocidal Products Regulation (GB BPR).

Certificates of Exemption may at any time be subject to amendment or revocation.

Certificates of Exemption are only relevant for products where the original application for authorisation was made under the older Biocidal Products Directive. The certificate allows the existing product to continue to be supplied and used whilst the application is being processed, and once authorised, allows for older stock to be phased off the market.

Certificates of Exemption are not issued for applications under GB BPR.
