Biocidal pest control products - Exposure situation for the professional user from the perspective of the risk assessment unit biocides for occupational safety

(in German)

Pest control products are classified as biocides and have to be authorised according to regulation (EU) No 528/2012 in the European Union. They represent the third-largest group of biocides on the German market. In the professional context, users primarily come into contact with products for control of rodents (rodenticides) and insects (insecticides). The exposure scenarios presented in this publication describe the current status of regulatory exposure assessment for professional users. They may also serve as a guideline for applicants in case no product specific exposure measurement data is available. The publication gives an overview on common professional application methods of biocidal pest control products within the authorisation process, their related exposure potential and risk mitigation measures to be taken.
