List of authorised biocidal products

The list of authorised biocidal products with links to the certificates of authorisation is available in a novel interactive web application with a search function.

Pursuant to Article 11, §2 of the Royal Decree of 4/4/2019, the registration, authorisation or notification expires on the date on which the (last) active substance is approved. If registration, authorisation or notification holders wish to continue to make their product available on the Belgian market, they must submit a European application and pay the required fee by this approval date.

That is why, on the date of approval of the (last) active substance, products approved in Belgium disappear from the list of approved products and reappear on it after the fee for the European application has been paid.

  • The web application is available in two modes: 'simple search' and 'advanced search'. In the 'simple search' mode, you can search by product name, authorisation number and product type. In the 'advanced search' mode, you can further refine the search using the criteria circuit (free/closed circuit), active substance (name or CAS number), hazard statement, target organism, authorisation holder, formulation type, user category and phasing out. In addition, in the 'advanced search' mode, it is possible to display extra columns or hide columns in the search results, as well as to export the search results to an Excel file by clicking on the Excel icon.
  • The list of authorised biocidal products in .PDF format (weekly update) can be downloaded by clicking on the icon next to 'List of authorised biocidal products' in the 'advanced search' mode of the web application.
  • In the list of search results, the link to the certificate of authorisation of a biocidal product can be found under the authorisation number of the biocidal product in question.
  • The column phasing out with use date and sell date in the list of search results is ONLY completed when a product receives a negative evaluation with the possibility of liquidating existing stocks OR in case of modifications with labelling impacts.
  • The automatic extensions do not give rise to a complete overhaul of the certificates of authorisation. That is why the end date of the authorisation in the list and the end date of the certificate that can be consulted online are not always identical. For the actual end date of the authorisation you must refer to the date in the list, and not to the date stated in the certificate of authorisation which can be consulted through the hyperlink.
  • Should you encounter problems when using the web application, or should you have questions or suggestions, please contact our helpdesk.

Since 2010, the FPS has drafted an annual report on the biocides market in Belgium and since 2013 (data from 2012), the report has been published in the form of an interactive tool.

The annual report contains two parts (graphics and lists) where information can be consulted interactively.

Graphics

This section contains the various data in the FPS' possession pertaining to the number and quantity of biocides and active substances per year. It is possible to take a look at the evolution of the market over the years, as well as the breakdown of biocides during the selected year in terms of group, type, class, user group and score (= hazard point of the biocides indicated in the authorisation report). It is therefore possible to select a reference year and carry out a search per group and/or type of biocides.

As for the quantities, the FPS disposes of the annual declarations of biocides placed on the market, which must be fulfilled before the 31 January of each year. Based on these annual declarations, the quantities and numbers of biocides, as well as the active substances, are available for all biocides; per group, per type of product; according to the classification of biocides: class A, unclassified, intended for the general public and/or professionals.

Lists

This section includes 3 lists associated with a selected year.

  1. List of biocides: shows the name of biocides, the authorisation number, the role, the type of product, the group, the company responsible for placing it on the market. It is possible to carry out searches on all these data.
  2. List of active substances: shows the list of active substances. You can carry out searches on the name of the active substance of the CAS number of the latter.
  3. List of companies: shows the name of those responsible for placing the biocides on the Belgian market and the corresponding countries. You can carry out a search by company name and/or country.

The progression of biocides observed since 2010 is a result of the European obligation of the notification of products which had not been subject to authorisation up until that point. The differences which can be observed between the number and quantity of biocides, or active substances, can be explained by the fact that companies request authorisations without necessarily placing the biocides on the market. The increase in the quantity of active substances from 2014 onwards is due to the declarations relating to the obligations "in situ".

Until 2014, biocides were either class A or general public 2014
