R4BP 3

Public access

Can I add confidential information in the SPC of my biocidal product?

The SPC is a public document and you cannot enter confidential information. The final SPC is approved by the evaluating Member State competent authority and will be published on the ECHA website.
Applicants who request for confidential information according to Article 66(4) of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) to not be made publicly available, need to include confidentiality claims in their IUCLID technical dossier.

Further information on confidentiality claims can be found in the "BSM Process of confidentiality requests for biocides applications" in the ‘Process manuals' section.

The information in the SPC available in my national authorisation is not correct. What can I do?

Your national authorities have the means to modify the SPCs available in assets in R4BP 3. They can initiate an amendment of a national authorisation and upload the amended SPC in the related asset in R4BP 3. Note that the SPC available in a national authorisation asset in R4BP 3 will be made publicly available from November 2018. The updated information will be published in the next batch of publicly available information only once your national authorities have completed the relevant changes in R4BP 3.
