UK BPR example fees

The examples below show how the administration, coordination and specialist fee modules may be put together for different types of applications for biocidal product authorisation under the UK Biocidal Products Regulation (UK BPR).

These examples are for illustrative purposes only and should not be taken as the actual fee charged by HSE.

Example 1 - Single product national authorisation application

In this example, the application contains read-across cases for toxicology and ecotoxicology and full study reports and / or risk assessments for other specialist areas.

Family applications are sifted in the same way as single products. However, more time is often spent establishing the family and evaluating the application, so top up fees are often required.

We are currently looking at updating the biocides fees and providing more information about families. Sign up to our e-bulletin for updates.

Example 2 - Major change application

In this example, the change involves new chemistry and efficacy data.
