Public consultation on derogation for in-situ generated nitrogen on the basis of protecting cultural heritage

2019-11-21

Biocidal products should normally be authorised only if its active substances are approved or included in Annex I of the Biocidal Products Regulation. However, Article 55(3) allows a Member State to authorise a biocidal product containing a non-approved active substance, if the active substance is essential for the protection of cultural heritage and no appropriate alternatives are available. Comments should be submitted by 18 January 2020 on whether in-situ nitrogen for product-type 18 (products for treatment against insects, arachnids and other arthropods) is essential for the protection of cultural heritage and whether appropriate (chemical or non-chemical) alternatives are available for the corresponding uses. Your comments will help the European Commission and the Member States competent authorities to take their decision. Further information is available at:
