How to Comply with the new K-BPR Requirements for Biocidal Products to Enter the Korean Market

Late pre-registration of existing active substances is available before manufacture or import for enterprises to obtain the grace period. From 2021, foreign manufacturers can appoint OR in Korea to fulfill notification of biocidal active substances and authorization of biocidal products.
