1. Overview

Following the end of the EU exit transition period on 31 December 2020, the EU Article 95 list of biocidal active substance suppliers is no longer applicable in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland).

Under the GB Biocidal Products Regulation (GB BPR) Great Britain maintains its own, independent list of biocidal active substance suppliers, referred to as the GB Article 95 List.

Biocidal active substance and product suppliers included on the EU Article 95 List on 31 December 2020 were automatically added to the GB Article 95 List.

To remain on the GB Article 95 List, suppliers must submit information to HSE by 31 December 2022.

Suppliers that fail to submit the relevant information to HSE by 31 December 2022 will be removed from the GB Article 95 List during 2023.
