Biocidal products with annual fees should not have a chemical fee

Chemicals for which an annual fee is paid according to the regulations on biocides should not also have a chemical fee.

This should be adjusted for in billing, but errors can occur. Therefore, contact us if you believe that you have received a chemical fee for products for which a biocidal fee was paid earlier this year.
