COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2024/247

of 16 January 2024

approving trihydrogen pentapotassium di(peroxomonosulfate) di(sulfate) as an existing active substance for use in biocidal products of product-types 2, 3, 4 and 5 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 89(1), third subparagraph, thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1062/2014 (2) establishes a list of existing active substances to be evaluated for their possible approval for use in biocidal products. That list includes pentapotassium bis(peroxymonosulfate)bis(sulfate) (CAS No: 70693-62-8) for product-types 2, 3, 4 and 5.

(2)

Pentapotassium bis(peroxymonosulfate)bis(sulfate) has been evaluated for use in biocidal products of product-types 2 (disinfectants and algaecides not intended for direct application to humans or animals), 3 (veterinary hygiene), 4 (food and feed area) and 5 (drinking water), as described in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(3)

Slovenia was designated as the rapporteur Member State and its evaluating competent authority submitted the assessment reports together with their conclusions to the European Chemicals Agency (‘the Agency’) on 23 September 2022. The Agency discussed the assessment reports and the conclusions in technical meetings.

(4)

During the examination of pentapotassium bis(peroxymonosulfate)bis(sulfate), the name of that active substance has been corrected by the Agency to trihydrogen pentapotassium di(peroxomonosulfate) di(sulfate).

(5)

In accordance with Article 75(1), second subparagraph, point (a), of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, the Biocidal Products Committee prepares the opinion of the Agency regarding the applications for approval of active substances. In accordance with Article 7(2) of Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1062/2014 read in conjunction with Article 75(1) and (4) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, the Biocidal Products Committee adopted the opinions of the Agency on 6 June 2023 (3), having regard to the conclusions of the evaluating competent authority. In those opinions, the Agency concludes that biocidal products of product-types 2, 3, 4 and 5 containing trihydrogen pentapotassium di(peroxomonosulfate) di(sulfate) may be expected to satisfy the criteria laid down in Article 19(1), point (b), of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, provided that certain conditions concerning their use are complied with.

(6)

Taking into account the opinions of the Agency, it is appropriate to approve trihydrogen pentapotassium di(peroxomonosulfate) di(sulfate) as an active substance for use in biocidal products of product-types 2, 3, 4 and 5 subject to compliance with certain conditions.

(7)

A reasonable period should be allowed to elapse before an active substance is approved in order to permit interested parties to take the preparatory measures necessary to meet the new requirements.

(8)

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

Trihydrogen pentapotassium di(peroxomonosulfate) di(sulfate) is approved as an active substance for use in biocidal products of product-types 2, 3, 4 and 5, subject to the conditions set out in the Annex.

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.

Done at Brussels, 16 January 2024.
