As of 1 September 2015 companies who are bringing biocidal products on the market have been legally required to be Article 95 compliant
This requirement can be fulfilled by an active substance dossier, or by purchase of an LoA from a company that is already listed. Alternatively, it is possible to buy the precursor from an already Article 95 listed company.
In 2018 the active substance dossier was divided into two:
- Active chlorine generated from sodium chloride by electrolysis:
In-situ PT 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
- Active chlorine released from hypochlorous acid:
Bottle PT 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
In November 2019 ECA Consortium was Article 95 listed for PT 11 for
- Active chlorine generated from sodium chloride by electrolysis.
The ECHA Article 95 List
Since 1 September 2015, a biocidal product cannot be made available on the EU market unless either the substance supplier or the product supplier is included in the Article 95 list for the PT to which the product belongs.
This means that to be compliant on the active substance, companies have to be on the ECHA Article 95 list.
In-situ companies can be compliant if they buy salt from an Article 95 listed supplier.
Approval of the active substance is a Union approval, and valid in all 27 countries.
