Searching for rodenticides?

The GB list of authorised biocidal products includes additional information on rodenticides - product type 14 (PT 14). Separate entries are included for general public and professional users for rodenticide products.

Target organisms and use area are mainly populated for PT 14 only, and you can also filter via these columns.

Entries for other product types will continue to be populated with this information in due course.

Certificates of Exemption

The below table contains details of the Certificates of Exemption issued for existing products that are currently being evaluated under 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, and 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.
