Earlier this year, ECHA has announced that several applications for Union Authorisation (UA) have been submitted without a prior pre-submission consultation, a legal requirement according to BPR Annex III, point 2. Prospective applicants for UA application should submit a pre-submission application through R4BP (UP-APP), at the latest 6 months before the intended date of UA submission. A draft SPC for the relevant biocidal product/family together with the relevant supporting documents will be necessary to confirm that the product falls within the scope of BPR. The aim of this pre-submission application is to confirm that the product will have similar conditions of use across the Union. This is not the same as pre-submission meetings with your evaluating CA or the reference MS in the context of BPF or PA dossier, which are strongly recommended but not legally binding.
