Biocides Stakeholders' Day
The European Chemicals Agency organised its third Biocides Stakeholders' Day on Tuesday 1 September 2015 in Helsinki.
The Stakeholders' Day provided key biocides stakeholders with information about the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) including the tools and support available for companies. The focus of the day was on case studies and experiences from companies on the various aspects of the regulation. The overall objective of the event was to give companies information about their roles and obligations to assist them in meeting their BPR requirements.
