Biocidal products right captures the biocidal products right products, affecting just indirectly chemically or biologically harmful organisms, by bringing a chain of causality, which should cause an inhibitory effect in the relevant pest. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling of the 01.03.2012 (C-420/10) has decided this. The ECJ is thus followed a corresponding vote of advocate of General: see here. Subject-matter of the proceedings was an Algaecide, which forms an insoluble and therefore chemically and biologically inert aluminum hydroxide precipitation in the form of a network entering in water by hydrolysis. Ripple insists that this is the case. This causes that unite (flocculation”) suspended algae in a mechanical physical process and allows the removal of algae from the water. The ECJ considers this already sufficient to classify such a product as a biocide. Because the algae would not directly tackled by the chemical action of the active substance.

Wear this effect but for their removal from the Water in. In view of the close link between the chemical effect and its consequences, which consist in a better control of the relevant harmful organism, such a product as a biocide is to look at. The biocidal products right, namely, serve to ensure a high level of protection for humans, animals and the environment. The mere presence of the substance in a product such as these proceedings constitute but a danger to the environment, regardless of whether the active substance directly or indirectly has an effect on the target organisms. This decision is of great practical significance of Algaecide. Because the European Court of Justice very far extends the scope of the biocides legislation, where he ultimately each launch of a chemical or biological chain of causality for a biocide is sufficient can be if at the end of the existence of a harmful organism to make it difficult to. Some borderline product could face involuntarily in the future with a rating as a zulassungspflichtiges biocide. More non-binding and free information related to the biocidal legislation, see
