EU decision non-approval of active substances in biocides

The European Commission has published a new decision (EU) 2020/1036 on the non-approval of certain active substances in biocidal products. Hand gel and sanitising wipes can be biocidal products.

For a number of active substance/product-type combinations included in that list, all the participants have withdrawn their support in a timely manner. The active substance/product-type combinations for which all participants made a timely withdrawal and for which the role of participant had previously been taken over, should not be approved for use in biocidal products. The date of application of the decision is not yet know at this moment. 

The full list of substances this decision is about can be accessed here.
