Any person, company or taskforce/consortium can support an active substance/product type combination for renewal – it doesn’t have to be the original supporter.

Check the GB Article 95 List to see who the original supporters were.

If a renewal application is not submitted for the above active substance/product type combinations under GB BPR, the approvals will expire. This means the active substances can no longer be used in biocidal products of the relevant product types in Great Britain.
