Update on the use of Copper as a Biocide for the control and treatment of Legionella

The European Commission on the 15th February 2014 stated both formally and legally that the UK was granted essential use derogation which henceforth allows the placing on the market of biocidal products containing copper, for the purpose of Legionella control.

Please visit the HSE website for their exact statement and contact their e-mail help-line for any further enquiries:

Tarn-Pure, as one of the founding members of the EU Biocidal Copper Task Force (BCTF), will now work with other industry members from the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain and France to prepare and submit, in a timely manner, a dossier supporting the review of copper as an existing active substance under the auspices of the EU's Biocidal Products Regulations to ensure full regulatory compliance in the UK and across the EU.


Tarn-Pure is now offering Copper/Silver ionisation equipment and services to new customers

Tarn-Pure Ltd is proudly able to state that it can continue to service its existing customers as well as to now make available its entire product range for consideration by prospective customers requiring a copper/silver ionisation system for the purpose of Legionella control.
