Biocides, Disinfectants, Insectides, Pesticides & Treated Articles


Specialist product regulatory lawyers advising 

manufacturers, distributors and importers

of biocidal products in the EU 


At RT Coopers solicitors the regulatory lawyers will advise and assist you on how to ensure compliance of your biocidal products under the Biocidal Product Regulation EU 528/2012 (“BPR”), whether you manufacture, sell, distribute or import biocides, insectides or pesticides. The BPR is relevant to your business if you are making biocidal products available on the European Union (‘EU’) market and/or placing treated articles on the EU market.


You should note that the BPR is binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States of the EU, including the UK.


Our solicitors are experts in product  regulatory law. Our regulatory solicitors have vast experience of advising and assisting manufacturing companies, distributors and importers in this area of law. The point is that before you can place a biocidal product on the market in the EU, it must have an authorisation, and the active substances contained in that biocidal product must be previously approved. This is where we come in as we are able to assist your company with the application for authorisation and approval.
