By 14 October, companies need to notify ECHA if they are using dialuminium chloride pentahydroxide as an active substance in product type (PT) 2 formulations (disinfectants or algaecides not intended for direct application to humans or animals).
By 30 October, companies should notify ECHA of existing active substance/PT combinations that are currently not supported by its review programme. Declarations of interest to notify active substance/PT combinations, if the biocidal product belongs to a different PT under the Biocidal Products Regulation than under the old Biocidal Products Directive, should also be made before this date.
