This page provides examples of how HSE’s module fee structure maybe used to calculate the initial estimated fee for application for product authorisation submitted to the UK under the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012 (EU BPR).

The examples below are made up from administrative, co-ordination and specialist fee modules for biocidal products. The co-ordination fee covers the co-ordination of the evaluation, production of authorisation documents and update of R4BP3. If data/study reports and risk assessments have been provided for a technical area then this is charged as a 'data module', whereas if there is a reliance on read-across to other information/data, or only waivers have been included for a technical area, then this is charged as a 'case module'. These examples are for illustrative purposes only and should not be taken as the actual fee charged by HSE. Please note these examples are for HSE fees only and are charged under the Biocidal Fees & Charges Regulations 2013.Additional fees may be payable to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
