The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published recommended guidelines for conducting an analysis of alternatives (AoA) for active substances that are candidates for substitution.
You can download the guidelines from this link.
The guidelines are intended for companies and competent authorities to analyze alternatives to biocidal active substances that are candidates for substitution, in accordance with the regulation on biocidal products. The guidelines provide a flexible approach and can be adapted for the biocidal product of interest.
The guidelines also contain a new template for the analysis report that will need to be submitted with the authorization application. If the active substance in your biocidal product is a candidate for substitution, follow the guidelines and include an analysis of alternatives as part of your application.
