R4BP 3 - Register for Biocidal Products

R4BP 3 is the central hub through which all biocides applications are made. It provides functions which enable the industry and the authorities to comply with the legislative requirements and exchange information between them. 

Biocides submissions under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) No 528/2012) started on 1 September 2013. 

IUCLID 5 is used to collect, organise and store the data on active substances and biocidal products. For an application, you create a IUCLID 5 dossier and submit it to ECHA and the national authorities through R4BP 3. IUCLID 5 can be downloaded from the IUCLID website. 


Migration from the previous version of R4BP to R4BP 3 is on-going. Not all existing authorisations are yet uploaded into the system. If you cannot find yours, consult the Q&A on migration for further instructions.
