Since March 2020, ECHA and the European Commission have been informed about the increased number of non-compliant hand disinfectants. Non-compliance includes lack of the required authorization or permit, lack hazard labelling, disinfectants which had a formulation that cannot be sufficiently effective against viruses, etc.
National enforcement authorities continue to perform market inspections with regard human health protection, which can include fines and the withdrawal of the products from the market.
Please contact INFOTOX if you need assistance to ensure your disinfectants are fully compliant.
Given the current exceptional situation related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Portuguese biocidal product regulator (DGS) will accept dossier submissions for biocidal product transitional period notifications and authorisations via email.
This is only valid for transitional period product submissions, for which DGS is the national competent authority. Once this exceptional situation has passed, companies will need to send as soon as possible the paper version of the submitted dossier to DGS. This change is active from 18/03/2020 for an undetermined time period.
If you need assistance to develop and submit your notification/ authorisation to DGS, please contact INFOTOX via firstname.lastname@example.org.
