Lonza Consumer Care Launches Online "Survive the BPR™" Knowledge Centre

Basel, Switzerland, 11 September 2017 – Lonza Consumer Care, a leader in hygiene and preservation solutions, announced today a new web-based Knowledge Centre to help customers Survive the BPR™. The newly introduced web-based platform, www.survivethebpr.com, provides customers with up-to-date information on the European Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, EU (No) 528/2012).

The BPR has an impact on all companies making biocidal products that are placed on the market in the EU, EEA and Switzerland.

“The Knowledge Centre provides current and timely information about different aspects of the complex and multifaceted landscape of the Biocidal Products Regulation,” said Joachim Gerdes, EMEA Marketing Director, for Hygiene and Preservation. “It provides a comprehensive set of documents for customers to better understand national authorisations, the Same Biocidal Products Regulation and many other pertinent topics related to the BPR.”

Lonza offers customers a number of different approaches to "Survive the BPR™.":

Customers have the possibility to produce and/or market a range of disinfectant formulations that Lonza intends to support through the BPR product authorisation process. For example, Lonzagard® Disinfectants and Disinfectant Cleaners are planned to be supported through the BPR as Biocidal Product families in Product Types 2-4.

Lonza also supports customers who wish to support their own product authorisation by providing information on analytical methods, end points and use patterns related to active substances.
