Non-approval decision

The decision not to approve a substance/product type combination in accordance with Article 9(1), point b) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 or Article 89(1), third subparagraph of the same Regulation, or not to include it in Annex I or IA to Directive 98/8/EC.

Placing on the market

The first making available on the market of a biocidal product or of a treated article.

Product family

A group of biocidal products having - similar uses, - the active substances of which have the same specifications, - and presenting specified variations in their composition which do not adversely affect the level of risk or significantly reduce the efficacy of the product

Product type

A comprehensive list of twenty-two product types, including an indicative set of descriptions for each type, published in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012. Four groups are represented: Group 1: Disinfectants and general biocidal products (PT1 to 5), Group 2: Preservatives (PT6 to 13), Group 3: Pest control products (PT14 to 19), Group 4: Other biocidal products (PT20 to 22).

Residues

A substance present in or on products of plant or animal origin, water resources, drinking water, food, feed or elsewhere in the environment and resulting from the use of a biocidal product, including such a substance's metabolites, breakdown or reaction products.

Single biocidal product

A biocidal product with no intended variations as to the percentage of the active or non-active substances it contains.

Substance of concern

Any substance, other than the active substance, which has an inherent capacity to cause an adverse effect, immediately or in the more distant future, on humans, in particular vulnerable groups, animals or the environment and is present or is produced in a biocidal product in sufficient concentration to present risks of such an effect. Such a substance would, unless there are other grounds for concern, normally be: - a substance classified as dangerous or that meets the criteria to be classified as dangerous according to Directive 67/548/EEC, and that is present in the biocidal product at a concentration leading the product to be regarded as dangerous within the meaning of Articles 5, 6 and 7 of Directive 1999/45/EC, or - a substance classified as hazardous or that meets the criteria for classification as hazardous according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, and that is present in the biocidal product at a concentration leading the product to be regarded as hazardous within the meaning of that Regulation, - a substance which meets the criteria for being a persistent organic pollutant (POP) under Regulation (EC) No 850/2004, or which meets the criteria for being persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bio-accumulative (vPvB), in accordance with Annex XIII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006

Technical equivalence

The similarity, as regards the chemical composition and hazard profile, of a substance produced either from a source different to the reference source, or from the reference source, but following a change to the manufacturing process and/or manufacturing location, compared to the substance of the reference source in respect of which the initial risk assessment was carried out, as established in Article 54 of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

Transitional period

The transitional regime is defined by Article 89 of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012: it is the period of time during which the making available on the market and use of biocidal products are governed by the national provisions in force in each Member State, pending approval of all the active substances they contain at Community level.
