Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) in the EU

The EU’s regularly changing legislation for biocidal products makes achieving an approval challenging. If you’re finding it difficult to get your products into Europe, LKC’s team of regulatory and technical specialists have the knowledge to ensure your products comply with Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012.

Furthermore, our expertise and resources promote the commercial sales of your professional pest control products within the EU, Switzerland and the UK. That’s because your products need to be registered with a company based locally, so registering your products through LKC and using our resources provides you with stability and access to a number of distributors across Europe.
