This guidance sets out the obligations of suppliers of active substances in accordance with Article 95 of the BPR.

The list of approved suppliers is regularly updated by ECHA.


From 1 September 2015, a biocidal product consisting of, containing, or generating a relevant substance, cannot be made available on the EU market if the substance supplier or product supplier is not included in the Article 95 list for the product type(s) to which the product belongs. More information about this can be found at ECHA.

There is also a list of applications pending to ECHAIt is important to note that the presence of a company for a given active substance/product type/role on the list of pending applications DOES NOT guarantee that the corresponding application will be successful and that the company will ultimately be included in the "Article 95 list".
