Disinfectants - ECHA published new document

16 April, 2020

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis regulatory bodies need to ensure adequate supply of active substances for use in biocidal products for disinfection purposes. The most effective tool of providing more biocidal products on the market is that MSCAs use Article 55(1) of the BPR to permit the placing on the market and use of biocidal products under derogation from Article 19, and in particular derogation from the technical equivalence requirement in Article 19(1)(c).

For the purposes of ensuring the optimal efficacy of such products and to help minimise risk, ECHA has published a document that provides the key compositional requirements for the active substances active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid.
