COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2012/40/EU

of 26 November 2012

correcting Annex I to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of biocidal products on the market

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 February 1998 concerning the placing of biocidal products on the market (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 16(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Directive 2009/91/EC of 31 July 2009 amending Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council to include disodium tetraborate as an active substance in Annex I thereto (2) defines disodium tetraborate by three CAS numbers for three different forms of the substance. The CAS numbers are based on a report submitted to the Commission by the Netherlands on 7 July 2006 and endorsed by the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products on 20 February 2009.

(2)

The Netherlands have informed the Commission that the CAS number for the pentahydrate form in the original report was incorrect, and submitted a revised report to the Commission according to which the correct CAS number for this form is 12179-04-3. The revised report was endorsed by the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products on 25 May 2012.

(3)

Annex I to Directive 98/8/EC should therefore be corrected accordingly.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products,
