- Only who has deposited the dossier by September 1st 2016 has the right to keep on the market its own technology on the basis of the transitional regulations (art. 93). In Italy, Sanipur Srl is the only supplier that has done it.
- As an in situ generated biocide, monochloramine and its production is strictly linked to the approved technology (regardless the presence of a related patent)
- Who didn’t register the dossier by 1st September 2016 will not appear on the authorized suppliers list and, thus, cannot place on the market any monochloramine-based biocide.
