With reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (“SoftOx”) on December 11th, 2020, when SoftOx received information from the Swedish Chemicals Agency that the application for SoftOx Disinfection Products was sufficiently complete to proceed to the final decision-making. Contrary to
this statement, the Swedish Chemicals Agency changed its initial position by rejecting SoftOx application with reference to its latest request for additional testing data.

This implies an estimated six-months delay for SoftOx’s major launch in the European markets, notwithstanding, the Swedish decision does not affect continued sales and marketing in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

“Based on the information received in December we were confident that our data was sufficient to approve our products. We are surprised by the decision and the justification when the Agency now ask for additional tests”, says CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx Solutions AS.

The request for additional test concerns certain impurities in the formulated disinfectants. SoftOx fundamentally and scientifically disagrees with the Swedish Chemicals Agency’s assessment and request for additional tests for this data. During the evaluation process, SoftOx submitted a series of test data, generated by the accredited third-party laboratory “Sintef”, in which it was confirmed that the concerned impurities does not impact adversely the SoftOx disinfectant products. In support of this, SoftOx has also undertaken additional tests to verify its initial conclusions presented to the competent authorities during the evaluation process. These confirmatory tests (including requested tests) are anticipated to be finalized in November 2021.

Notwithstanding, SoftOx is committed to defend its scientific position and pursue its biocides submission before the national competent authorities. On advice from its scientific experts, SoftOx intends to contest and submit an administrative appeal in Sweden, and to undertake additional regulatory measures to ensure a scientifically viable and sustainable implementation of EU’s biocides regime on SoftOx products.

“SoftOx feels confident that when the requested documentation is available, the application will be duly recognized.” Says Almås.
