Live online workshop: biocides efficacy

11, 12 & 13 June 2024

This workshop will be delivered online over 3 morning sessions and will help develop an understanding of the regulatory approach to efficacy assessment under the GB BPR.


It will focus on helping attendees understand how to improve the quality of their efficacy data packages by illustrating how these dossiers are assessed by HSE as the regulator responsible for authorisations and approvals under GB BPR. 


We will share our experience and worked examples to demonstrate best practice and common issues and data gaps that we encounter during assessments.


Who should attend?

The course is suitable for all those involved in the creation and submission of an efficacy data package for GB BPR applications, including test houses, applicants, consultants, etc.


No prior experience is assumed; the course will provide both a good starting point for beginners and an opportunity to develop and update the knowledge of those experienced in producing dossiers.
