The ECHA’s Biocidal Products Committee (BPC) backs the approval of the following active substance product-type combinations.

Benzalkonium chloride (BKC) commonly known as alkyl-dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (ADBAC), which is product type 3 use in animal hygiene products such as disinfectants and oral or corporal hygiene products.

Didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDAC) is an antiseptic/disinfectant that is used in many biocidal applications, which is product type 4 used to disinfect equipment, containers, and surfaces needed in the production, transport, storage, or consumption of food or feed for people and animals.

BPC also supports a Union-wide authorization for an insecticide containing clothianidin and pyriproxyfen. Also, the BPC discussed and agreed on the revised working procedures for active substance approvals and Union authorization. The revised procedures will be published later on the committee’s web page.

Clothianidin and Pyriproxyfen for use in pest control against insects, arachnids, and other anthropods (product-type 18).
