COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2023/1144

of 9 June 2023

granting a Union authorisation for the single biocidal product ‘Bacticid IPA-N’ in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (1), and in particular Article 44(5), first subparagraph, thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

On 24 April 2019, Chemi-Pharm AS submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (‘the Agency’) an application in accordance with Article 43(1) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 and Article 4 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 414/2013 (2) for Union authorisation of the same single biocidal product, as referred to in Article 1 of that Regulation, named ‘Bacticid IPA-N’, of product-types 2 and 4, as described in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012. The application was recorded under case number BC-SM051156-28 in the Register for Biocidal Products (‘the Register’). The application also indicated the application number of the related reference biocidal product family ‘Knieler & Team Propanol Family’, recorded in the Register under case number BC-AQ050985-22.

(2)

The same single biocidal product ‘Bacticid IPA-N’ contains propan-1-ol and propan-2-ol as the active substances, which are included in the Union list of approved active substances referred to in Article 9(2) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 for product-types 2 and 4.

(3)

On 8 December 2021, the Agency submitted to the Commission an opinion (3) and the draft summary of the biocidal product characteristics (‘SPC’) of ‘Bacticid IPA-N’ in accordance with Article 6 of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 414/2013.

(4)

The opinion concludes that the proposed differences between the same single biocidal product and the related reference biocidal product are limited to information which can be the subject of an administrative change in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 354/2013 (4), and that based on the assessment of the related reference biocidal product family ‘Knieler & Team Propanol Family’ and subject to compliance with the draft SPC, the same single biocidal product meets the conditions laid down in Article 19(1) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(5)

On 24 October 2022, the Agency transmitted to the Commission the draft SPC in all the official languages of the Union in accordance with Article 44(4) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(6)

The Commission concurs with the opinion of the Agency and considers it therefore appropriate to grant a Union authorisation for the same single biocidal product ‘Bacticid IPA-N’.

(7)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

A Union authorisation with authorisation number EU-0027679-0000 is granted to Chemi-Pharm AS for the making available on the market and use of the same single biocidal product ‘Bacticid IPA-N’ in accordance with the summary of the biocidal product characteristics set out in the Annex.

The Union authorisation is valid from 2 July 2023 until 31 July 2032.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
