Webinar: EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR): What it Means for Industry and How it Compares to U.S. Regulation, April 30, 2014, 1:00pm - 2:30pm

The European Union Biocidal Products Regulation dramatically changes the way biocidal active substances and products, as well as many products not traditionally considered biocidal products, are regulated under European law. Practical aspects of this new regulatory system are subtly different from those in other jurisdictions, EU neighboring countries, and the US. Companies exporting to the EU as a component of their global business must ensure that their supply chains and product designs are compliant with the regulation.

The webinar, presented by Bloomberg BNA and featuring Andrew R. Bourne, Lisa R. Burchi, and Lara A. Hall, was focused on existing industry norms and explore how current standard practices are affected by the new developments in EU biocides regulation. The current trends in the EU biocides regulatory landscape will be compared to the U.S. system (the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)), and the time and practical steps necessary to bring a product to market in the U.S. and EU were contrasted. 1.5 hours of CPE or CLE credit.
