Closed circuit – No more annual confirmation for professional users

From now on, professional users of closed-circuit biocides no longer have to (re-)confirm their status.

In previous years, the Biocides department sent a reminder to professional users for them to confirm their status at the end of the year. However, this annual confirmation entailed an administrative workload without much added value. The department has therefore prepared an amending decree aiming to abolish the compulsory, annual status confirmation for professional users (see Article 41 of the Royal Decree of 4 April 2019 on Biocides). The amending decree will enter into force on the first of January 2023.

From now on, the status of professional user will remain valid, without the requirement for an annual confirmation. Companies ceasing their activities as professional users can report this via the helpdesk.
