Quaternary ammonium: BKC/ADBAC regulatory updates and submission strategies

2023 - 45 minutes

All biocidal products must comply with certain regulatory provisions before being placed on the European market (Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012). They depend on the status of the active substance, the  product type (PT) and the Member State(s) in which the biocidal product will be made available.


Anticipating the different steps to be taken before submitting a dossier is therefore essential to control your strategy for placing a biocidal product on the market. 



💡EcoMundo has decided to set up a consortium to carry out the application for Biocidal Product Family (BPF) authorization dossier for BKC/ADBAC-based products claimed as PT2 and PT4.

EcoMundo aims to offer a transparent biocidal consortium that is adapted to the members' needs (e.g. algicides for professional and non professional users).

In this webinar, we will present the strategies and the operating mode of this consortium dedicated to quaternary ammonium and especially for BKC/ADBAC-based products. A focus will be made on the different minor opinions raised during the Biocidal Product Committee and their impact on the product authorisation dossier strategy and its timeline.

  • Understanding the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) with the different regulatory
  • Anticipating the strategy & optimising the costs of a BKC/ADBAC-based Biocidal Product Family(BPF) for multiple uses (e.g. algicides)
  • Understanding the impact of Minor Opinions concerning BKC/ADBAC for Biocidal Product Authorisation dossier
  • The added value of the EcoMundo Quats Consortium (EQuaC)
