Use of Biocides in Harbours 06-02-2014
It has been advised that the Environment Agency (EA) has identified problems in the use of non-approved biocides for the cleaning of slipways, walls and steps in ports and harbours.

It is recognised that the term biocide is not clearly understood and the EA has requested that we share the attached information with UKHMA members which should go some way to identifying acceptable products and establishing good practice.

The attached information does not include any new regulatory controls.

Should further clarification be required, you are invited to contact Jo Bradley, Environment and Business Advisor - Pollution Prevention, Environment Agency on email: Jo.bradley@environment-agency.gov.uk
