The Swedish Chemicals Agency (Kemi) has extended a derogation until 30 September that allows disinfectant manufacturers to source substances from unregistered suppliers.
The derogation exempts producers of disinfectants from the rules of the EU biocidal products Regulation’s (BPR) Article 95, which bind companies to sourcing biocidal active substances only from a list of approved substance suppliers.
This was due to expire on 30 June. But Kemi says it remains important to ensure a solid supply of disinfectants to meet the high demand during the pandemic.
