The BPR* Is Happening and Will Affect All Companies Making Disinfectants That Are Sold in Europe!


Lonza wants to update you on how we can help you survive the BPR*. We are able to offer you a number of different approaches:

  • Lonza can support you with data, analytical methods and support for our broad portfolio of actives that may be used in your formulations.
  • Lonza offers you the opportunity to produce and/or market a range of established and new disinfectant formulations that we intend to support through the product authorization process of the BPR* for a defined list of countries. These formulations could easily and cost-effectively be added into your product range and marketed under your own trade name using Lonza’s previously generated efficacy data; thus saving you an estimated amount that may exceed € 250,000 per product.


Take the following steps starting today…

  • Make sure your product is on the market, in each of your target countries, before the date of inclusion of the active substance, to allow continuity of supply. This date may be earlier depending on the transitional arrangements in each member state.  Failure to have a product on the market by the date of inclusion of the active substance could be the loss of up to 3 years of business.
  • Work with Lonza to assess your current and future product needs.
  • Work with Lonza during the BPR to ensure no interruption to business.
  • Discuss options to purchase and/or manufacture (following our original formulation recipe) our supported disinfectant products

Call Lonza today … The decision on inclusion of key actives for disinfecting products could be as early as 2017! Time is running out!  


Lonza is committed to investing in innovative solutions that meet our customers’ current and future needs. New and improved disinfectant products are in development – contact us to be one of the first companies to find out more.
