Micro-Pak takes regulatory issues very seriously. We have invested considerable sums in making sure that we are in full compliance with both our legal obligations as well as customers’ specific requirements. We try to be ahead of the trends in this area and welcome any suggestions for additional compliance testing.


Anti-microbial products distributed in the United States, either directly or as part of secondary packaging, are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

Anti-microbial products distributed in the EU, either directly or as part of secondary packaging, as well as biocides used to treat articles outside of the EU are subject to registration under the new Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). The BPR came into effect on September 1, 2013 with a three-year transition period for treated articles. Micro-Pak is in the process of registration and will be fully compliant well before the conclusion of the transition period.
