Biocide efficacy testing

Food crops must be protected in order to be able to produce enough food worldwide. In addition, products are needed for the disinfection, storage and preservation of foodstuffs. We can help you with laboratory tests that ascertain whether the products are sufficiently effective in destroying harmful organisms.

Assessment and usage

Biocides are substances that contain one or more active ingredients that can destroy, repel or render harmless any harmful or unwelcome organisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. These biocides may only be sold on the Dutch market if they are safe and effective when used according to the instructions for use. Before a product is allowed on the Dutch market, a manufacturer must submit an application to the Dutch Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (CTGB). The CTGB assesses whether the product is safe for both human beings and the environment, and also looks at the efficacy; e.g. does the product deliver what it promises? Rules for the use of biocides have also been drawn up on a European level. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has issued a Biocides Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) that the CTGB uses as a basis for evaluating authorisation documentation.
