BBP workshop "The biocide legislation and its impact on contained laboratories, greenhouses and animal facilities"
Geo-Instituut 200E, Celestijnenlaan 200e – Heverlee (Leuven)
Are you finding your way in the biocide legislation? Or are you struggling, as many colleagues, with questions like:
- Can I still use particular products (e.g. Virkon®) and, if so, for how long?
- If not, what are suitable alternative products?
- Do we need to change our decontamination procedures?
- What are the consequences of the biocide legislation on my organization?
We hope to offer clarity during the BBP workshop
