Book a meeting with the Danish EPA
In the experience og the Danish EPA, a meeting between the applicant and authority in the planning phase of the application is a constructive way of addressing potential technical og practical problems. Hence the Danish EPA offers to meet with companies that are considering Denmark as rapporteur member state (a national application under the BPR), or plan to submit a dossier for a new active substance and are considering Denmark as evaluating authority.
