To make claims about the efficacy of SILVERbac® in the UK and the EU, and to satisfy most of the UK and EU regulatory agencies, we need to ensure that we follow several rules and protocols shown below:

  1. We must use Article 95 silver for all products imported into the EU and the UK
  2. We need to track each Masterbatch made with Article 95 silver all the way through the entire supply chain up to the point that a consumer purchases a product.
  3. All finished products (Treated Articles) must be made outside both the UK and the EU and then imported back into the UK and the EU
  4. Any payments we receive for Masterbatch or any Royalties we receive must come from outside the UK and the EU
  5. If rules 1-4 are not followed, we will have to register SILVERbac as a biocide and will have to register throughout the EU and in the UK
  6. Any claim that we make MUST be backed up by outside lab tests that prove that the claim is valid.
  7. We cannot make any claims about the effects SILVERbac® has on the products as those are reserved for PT2 registered and approved substances..

If we follow those rules, we are able to make a host of claims about the efficacy of SILVERbac.

These claims can be used for marketing by ourselves and also by the sellers of products made using SILVERbac. We will need to approve our customers marketing language, their claims and all of their labeling and packaging. We can modify and/or adjust the language in these claims if we choose to.
