We have experience assembling, developing and assessing environmental data packages, compiling dossiers and conducting environmental risk assessments for submission of biocidal products in both the US and the EU. We have conducted environmental risk assessments of antifoulant paints used on watercraft and oil platforms in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, San Diego Bay, Norfolk Harbor and watercraft on freshwater lakes in the U.S. and New Zealand. We have also assessed biocidal products for use in oil platforms in the North Sea to conform to OSPAR-HOCNF requirements.

What are Biocidal products?

Biocidal products, also referred to as antimicrobial pesticides, are used to control the growth of nuisance or harmful microorganisms. These vary from sterilization, to disinfection, to water treatment, oil and gas recovery. They also extend to include preserving agents in paints, wood supports, metal working fluids, and other products to increase product shelf life. These pesticides are regulated in Europe under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) and in the U.S. under 40 CFR Parts 158W.
