A neat Belgian article on how clues were there, but were missed before the murderous attacks in Paris in November 2017:
About one clue, however, nothing has been published yet — and that clue is likely the very best chance authorities missed to detect the terrorist cell....a subsequent house search a handwritten note was found. It seemed of little importance: “Bayroshock without chlorine”, it mentioned, followed by the addresses of two shops for swimming pool equipment in the North of France. Bayroshock is a product against algae that consists of hydrogen peroxide at a concentration of 34%. Apart from being recommended for the treatment of pools, that same substance is also a main ingredient of TATP.

Not being avid watcher of limiting explosive components:
An EU Directive (2008) banning the sale of hydrogen peroxide in concentrations above 12% to private customers was passed into law (https://economie.fgov.be/fr/themes/qualite-securite/securite-des-produits-et/explosifs-et-artifices-de-joie/prevenir-et-lutter-contre-les) in July 2016 (in Belgium). But in France, a softened version entered into force (https://www.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Commercialisation-et-utilisation-des-precurseurs-d-explosifs2) last year, just requiring registration for private purchases.

That makes me wonder have other nations followed this dilution of Bayroshock?

The UK has, as this advert clearly states:https://www.onlinepoolstore.co.uk/bayrol-bayroshock-liquid---hydrogen-peroxide---5-litres---collect-in-store-only-4709-p.asp

There is a catch-all thread on General CT where this may sir one day. See:http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/showthread.php?12225-General-CT-in-Europe-(catch-all)
