Does French legislation also apply to French Overseas Départements and Regions (DROMs) and French Overseas Communities (COMs)? Print
Written by DPR Biocides - Anses   

The French regulations also apply in the DROMs (French Guiana, Martinique, Guadeloupe, La Réunion and Mayotte, Saint-Martin, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, Clipperton). They are only partially applicable to COMs, however, since these entities enjoy a certain degree of autonomy and determine themselves which specific regulations should be enforced when the French Environmental Code or General Local Authorities Code (CGCT) does not specify otherwise. For further information, contact the COMs directly.

The regulation applicable to biocidal products in the following territories therefore fall within local law:

  • Saint-Barthélemy
  • French Polynesia
  • Wallis & Futuna
  • New Caledonia
  • French Southern and Antarctic Lands
