Otherwise, the biocidal product shall no longer be made available on the market with effect from 180 days after the date of approval of Calcium hypochlorite.

Since the Calcium hypochlorite has been approved in December 14, 2016, the deadline of submit the product authorization dossier is the end of 2018 which is less than two years from now. In order not to affect the normal trade of relevant entity, it is the time for us to prepare product authorization right now.

As requested by many enterprises, REACH24H Group would like to establish a consortia for the purpose of applying biocidal products authorization under BPR for the biocidal products containing Calcium hypochlorite. As the initiator of the consortia, we have already collected the entire data about Calcium hypochlorite and some data of the products (some tests are under conducting in GLP laboratory) which will be very helpful for the consortia to well prepare the biocidal products authorization project. And some companies have already joined the consortia recently. If your products are included, we will be very happy to invite you to join us and help you to finish the biocidal products authorization.

Why should we attend the Consortia to get the biocidal product authorization?

1.  Cost saving and reduced administrative burden as much as possible

The significant advantage is the cost saving for the biocidal product authorization. The biocidal product consortia could divide the administration fee and reduce data cost because the biocidal product Consortia is allowed to use one set of data to help all the members to get the biocidal product authorization which could save at least half a million dollars. At the same time, the more members in the biocidal Consortia the less of the cost for each product.

2. Reduce the period and the workload of regulatory compliance

Using one set of data to apply the product authorization which could also reduce the workload for the companies and the Committee. In addition, the tests for each product is less, thus the experiment period might be shortened.
