Hofstade, Belgium 19th March 2018 – EurO3zon is driving the regulative requirements for ozone under Biocidal Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 528/2012) since 2012. One milestone was the filing of the dossier outlining the characteristics of the active substance “ozone“ on the 27th July in 2015.
The progress and developments of the dossier evaluation can be found on the website of EurO3zon (www.euro3zon.org) as well as on the ECHA website listing the inclusion of ozone in the review process.
Throughout the process the active substance dossier has been renamed by ECHA and is now listed under “Ozone generated from oxygen”.

At the August 15, 2017 General Assembly of the IOA in Washington, DC, Mr. Bernhard Paolini was confirmed as IOA President for 2018-2019.
The International Ozone Association (IOA) is a non-profit educational and scientific organization dedicated to the collection and dissemination of information on, and to promote research in, any and all aspects of ozone and related oxygen species technologies
Members coming from science, industries and municipalities
Platform for exchange of knowhow, good practise and the safe use of ozone between the members
Publish the highly scientific and technical journal "Science and Engineering“
Note: Other founding members of EurO3zon are also members of IOA
Following the approval of ozone as an active substance, all ozone applications need to be authorized as “biocidal product”. It is unlikely that (end-)users of ozone equipment will be able to complete the authorization procedure by own means. This is mainly due to detailed specialist know-how being required and the high cost associated with the process. Manufacturers of ozone equipment will have effectively the duty to take care about the authorization process based on the LoA-ownership of an approved active substance dossier. The product authorizations have to start directly after approval of the active substance, which is expected 2017/2018. Based on the detailed know-how gathered in the approval process of the BPR, EurO3zon decided to make a product authorization, which can cover also the biocidal products of EurO3zon LoA-owners and avoiding huge extra-costs for individual product authorizations. Negotiations with the authorities on this subject are in process and ongoing.
In the Competent Authority (CA) meeting of September 2015 in Brussels the Dutch CA offered to develop a guidance document to specify information requirements for in situ generated free radicals for substance approval and for product authorisation in the context of the BPR. EurO3zon was invited to participate in this workshop allowing us to represent the interests of the European ozone industries.
