National measures to fast-track the availability of disinfectants

The cross industry alliance on COVID-19 has updated its practical guide on fast-tracking the supply of disinfectants. Both the main part of the guide, which sets out the main procedures for fast-tracking the availability of disinfectants in order to help fight the pandemic, and annex 1 which provides an overview of national measures (either under the Article 55 of BPR and/or national laws) have been updated. 

The practical guide aims to support companies that manufacture and supply disinfectants to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is the cross industry alliance? 

The alliance was set up at the initiative of A.I.S.E., EBPF (now called Biocides for Europe, a sector group of CEFIC) and FECC (the European Association of Chemical Distributors).
