Swedish transitional rules on biocides

The EU Biocidal Products Regulation applies since 1 September 2013 and regulates the making available on the market and use of biocidal products. Many active substances occurring in biocidal products are currently evaluated within the EU Review Programme. As long as the review evaluation is going on, Swedish, national rules apply.

Applicable Swedish rules to apply during the transitional period are contained in:

Chapter 14 of the Environmental Code (1998:808)

Chapters 3 and 4 of the Pesticides Ordinance (2014:425) (in Swedish)

The Swedish Chemical Agency’s Pesticides Regulations (KIFS 2008:3). (in Swedish)
