K-BPR Compliance


Background of K-BPR

K-BPR Compliance

In order to regulate the management of biocide products and consumer-related chemicals in the Korean market and prevent the recurrence of safety problems, the Korean Ministry of Environment (MOE) enacted the Consumer Chemical Products and Biocides Safety Act (also known as K-BPR) in 2019. The amendments to the K-BPR were enacted in March 2020 and formally implemented in January 2021. Similar to the EU BPR, the K-BPR establishes regulations and management measures for compliance with biocide active substances, biocide products, and treated articles. Manufacturers and importers of these products are required to meet a series of labeling, certification, declaration, and licensing requirements to ensure that the products continue to circulate in the Korean market.

About Us

Both biocidal products and consumer chemical products need to undergo a complex evaluation and declaration process before entering the Korean market. The rigor of K-BPR has brought a certain burden to the declaration of enterprises. Our company is committed to developing the most appropriate K-BPR compliance strategy for companies based on their own actual situation and requirements. For your products that meet or are similar to the types of products announced in the Korean K-BPR regulations, we offer a full range of Korean K-BPR compliance services to help you improve your company's competitiveness in Korea and expand the Korean market.
