Last week took place in Barcelona, one of the most important events related to regulations relevant to the chemical industry as the European BPR, Biocidal Products Regulation in force since 2016 which regulates the majority of the products marketed by Nanobiomatters BactiBlock®.
Our head of department of regulation, Raquel Ramon, attended the event the last 23 and 24 September where she had the opportunity to listen, ask questions and meet wellknown personalities within the ECHA (Mr. Valerio Spinosi) or the European Commission ( Mr. Ludovic Chatelin) and components from different areas of the ministries responsible for monitoring compliance with these regulations, countries such as Sweden (KEMI), Austria (BMLFUW), England (HSE), Italy (Istituto Superiore di Sanita ), Netherlands (Ctgb) and Belgium (Food Chain Safety and Environment).
Note the presence of Mr. Ian Pepper, a prestigious English consultant with great experience behind them in European regulation, who presided over and addressed the conference dedicated exclusively to the BPR. In addition, companies such as Dow Microbial Control, Bayer CropScience and BASF had the opportunity to address the audience to show their experiences with the BPR. However, Nanobiomatters was very important for the intervention of the president of the European Trade Association of Ozone (EUOTA), who claimed some of the difficulties with which small and medium enterprises are having to deal to be properly within the jurisdiction of this mRegulation of the European Commission.
