Comparative study on exposure of workers and bystanders during pest control of the Oak Processionary Moth by spray application
Biocidal products used for spray application against the oak processionary moth (OPM) require authorisation in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012 of the European Parliament for that use. For authorisation, a risk assessment based on exposure estimation is performed for all intended uses of the respective product. Detailed information on the application process and the resulting exposure of operators and of bystanders was lacking until now. It is expected that the main routes of exposure are dermal and inhalation. Spray applications carried out for control of OPM show significant differences...
OECD Guidance Document on Quantitative Methods for Evaluating the Activity of Microbicides used on Hard Non-Porous Surfaces
The OECD Biocides Programme and Test Guidelines Programme have been working together for several years to develop test methods for assessing the efficacy of biocidal products. A Guidance Document on microbicides* efficacy testing was issued in June 2013 and published in the series on Biocides (document No. 6) and series on Testing and Assessment (document No. 187). It describes quantitative methods for evaluating the activity of microbicides used on hard non-porous surfaces. Efficacy data are part of the regulatory requirements that manufacturers/ applicants have to comply with concerning the authorisation...
UK impact assessment of the proposed biocides regulation
In 2009 the European Commission proposed a directly-acting European Regulation on placing on the market and use of biocidal products. The Regulation will replace the existing Biocidal Products Directive (98/8/EC), and aims to streamline and reduce the cost of the existing regime while maintaining the level of protection to human and animal health and the environment that it currently offers.

Antibiotic Resistance Effects of Biocides
The European Commission has given a mandate to the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) to prepare an opinion on the potential of biocidal substances to cause resistance to antibiotics. The SCENIHR has approved a preliminary version of the opinion which addresses this issue and identifies priorities for further research in this field. http://ec.europa.eu/health/ph_risk/committees/04_scenihr/docs/scenihr_o_020.pdf
