In early 1998, the European Commission and Parliament adopted Directive 98/8/EC concerning the placing on the market of biocidal products. After the adoption of the Directive the Commission started the proposal for a review regulation of the existing active biocidal substances. This paper outlines the effort currently being undertaken, to define the procedures to be used. A statistical analysis of current uses of the active substances is included (correct as of February 2000).
