Why RID is not available in the EU or UK

The EU Biocidal Products Regulations 528/2012 (BPR) was put in place to provide a level of standardisation across countries in the EU. As a biocide, DEET is now regulated under the BPR to ensure consistent product safety across the EU. DEET is one of the first products to be regulated. DEET repellents over 50% in strength have not been legal for sale in the EU since 2016. Even though RID products contain a maximum of only 19.5% DEET, as an Australian brand, it has not been approved by the EU.

If you live in the EU or UK and want the most effective insect repellent available in the EU, you should consider Bushman Ultra Insect Repellent
