HSE provides updated guidance on processes required under GB BPR
The UK's Competent Authority for biocides – Health and Safety Executive (HSE) – has recently updated its webpages on the processes required under GB Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), which came into force at 11.00pm on 31 December 2020.
HSE has also published several useful resources, helping companies to comply with the new regulation. These include:
- Biocidal Products Regulation Update – webinar hosted in December and now available to watch via YouTube
- Regulating Chemicals After the UK Transition Period – a second webinar scheduled for 20 January 2021, where we look forward to hearing any changes due to the Brexit deal that was secured
- Podcasts summarising the latest details, available on demand
- Factsheets to help companies navigate particular requirements
