EDANA publishes Guide and offers webinar to the Biocidal Products Regulation

Webinar scheduled to provide companies with support to implementing this important change.

EDANA the leading global association and voice of the nonwovens and related industries, has announced the publication of its Guide to the European Biocidal Products Regulation.

The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) has been in place since 2012 and EDANA has actively followed the developments to this regulation. “It is obvious that there are still some open questions about the implementation and interpretation of the BPR, and this is why we are publishing the BPR Guide - to share our views on the Regulation and continue to give information to EDANA member companies about what this may mean for their products and organisation and help them in their interaction with third parties about this.” said Marianne Rosborg, EDANA’s Regulatory Affairs Manager.

EDANA (and other stakeholders) have engaged with the European Commission in the discussion about ‘treated articles’, and EDANA’s BPR Guide highlights the details and outcomes of these discussions.

“The timing for publishing the BPR Guide is right. The European Commission has now finalised its FAQ on treated articles, and with this in hand and the BPR Guide from EDANA, our industry now has better support and directions for the implementation of this regulation within their business, and for their products.” Said EDANA’s General Manager Pierre Wiertz.

In addition to publishing the BPR Guide, EDANA will be hosting a webinar on 31st March 2015 at 4pm (Brussels time) about the BPR and the Association’s guide. The webinar will be free and open the public – additional details and registration is available at
