|TROY LEADS THE WAY IN EU BIOCIDE PRODUCT DIRECTIVE REGISTRATION|
Thursday, February 05, 2009
- FLORHAM PARK, NJ February 5, 2009 - Troy Corporation announced today that all Biocide Product Directive (BPD) dossiers for its actives sold within the EU have been submitted on schedule. As a market leader in biocides, Troy will continue to make investments that will ensure product availability within the marketplace.
According to Didier Leroy, Regulatory Affairs Manager, European Operations
, the 4th
and last phase of submission of active substance dossiers under the BPD review of existing active substances ended in November 2008. The review of active substances will continue until May 2013-2014, meaning active substances that are supported can continue to be sold and used for another few years (HOW MANY YEARS) under a “transitional period”. Additionally, it has proven impossible for the EU authorities to finalize their review during the intended 10 year review period (ending May 2010), and as a result, the program will be extended another 3-4 years under the “BPD min. review”.
Troy leads the way in anticipating, working, and complying with environmental legislation by developing products that meet performance requirements as well as safety and environmental regulations. “Troy remains committed to supporting its customers during the BPD registration process and continues to be the leading biocides and performance additives supplier you have come to expect,” states Ismael Colon, Ph.D., Vice President and Managing Director, Europe. “Troy develops products that meet and exceed customer performance requirements and governmental regulations such as zero or low VOC, formaldehyde-free, and ph neutral wet-state preservative products,” “Additionally Troy works with customers’ individual systems to custom design the most cost effective, performance system based on individual or symbiotic product combinations. Troy’s microbiological laboratories conduct customer specific testing and have the ability to custom design solutions taking into account the specific manufacturing environments.
