Authorisation of Biocides
Turkish Biocidal Products Regulation concerning the placing on the market and use of biocidal products was published in the Official Gazette and came into force on December 31, 2009. The regulation was first prepared in accordance with EU Biocidal Products Directive 98/8/EC and then harmonised with EU’s BPR Regulation 528/2012 with an amendment.
This regulation aims to improve the functioning of the biocidal products market in Turkey while ensuring a high level of protection for humans and the environment. All biocidal products require authorisation before they can be placed on the market.
Emergency authorisation of biocidal products.
Article 15 of the BPR Regulation allows manufacturer/importer to authorise the placing on the market of biocidal products, in special circumstances and derogating from the regular authorisation process, for a period not exceeding 120 days and for limited and controlled use, where such a measure is necessary because of a danger which cannot be contained by any other reasonable means.
