Any tests and experiments carried out for research and development purposes using unauthorised biocidal products and their (not approved) active substances must be recorded and may require notifications if a release in the environment is possible.

To obtain an authorisation for a test or experiment to be carried out for research or development purposes, you have to compose a paper dossier if the biocidal product containing an active substance may be released into the environment as a result of the test or experiment, and you also have to pay a fee of € 500.
