One year ago the Note for Guidance ‘Implementing the concept of biocidal product family’ was put into force. This new family concept has forced everyone to reevaluate the way Biocidal Product Families are formed. The narrowed BPF concept and the subsequent stricter eCa’s has made ARCHE Consortia reconsider the way we establish our consortia around these families. We took our experience with starting consortia from the early beginning of the BPF concept and poured it into an “ARCHE Biocide Consortia 2.0” version.

ARCHE Consortia has already started pre-consortia based on this new version and we are building up our own experience with this adapted situation. If you are interested in finding out for which active substances we are looking to start a consortium check our call of interest: https://arche-consortia.be/.
