Biocides (Biocidal products) include a wide range of substances (non-agricultural pesticides), intended to destroy harmful organims by chemical or biological means. By implementing in the European Union the Biocidal Products Regulation (RPB, Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, the EU aims to develop a stricter control system for this type of products in order to prevent the use of toxic substances that may be harmful to the human health or the environment.
Vivotecnia offers a wide range of test for biocidal products, in order to help our clients to obtain the product commercialization authorization in compliance with the RPB.

We can work for all the industries affected by the RPB, including 22 types of substances distributed into 4 main groups: Disinfectants, Preservatives, Pest control and other biocidal products.
Annex II of the RPB establishes the information requirements for Biocides dossier submission. Among these requirements, it is deemed necessary to include data concerning the toxicological profile for humans and animals including metabolism.


Vivotecnia offers the following studies to obtain these data:


  • Acute toxicity
  • Irritation
  • Corrosivity
  • Sensitization
  • Repeated dose toxicity
  • Mutagenicity
  • Carcinogenicity
  • Reproductive toxicity
  • Endocrine system disruption
