This 30 page guide aims to support furniture organisations in complying with the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012).

The three groups of biocides defined under the BPR (disinfectants and general biocides; preservatives; pest control) are widely used across the furniture industry.
