Antimicrobial fogging and misting protocols approved

The EPA has approved protocols that would allow antimicrobial product developers to register disinfection and sanitizer products intended for fogging or misting applications

August 14, 2014

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved protocols that would allow antimicrobial product developers to register disinfection and sanitizer products intended for fogging or misting applications, according to an article on the Infection Control Today website.

The protocol will confirm a product's antimicrobial efficacy against public health organisms when tested in a dedicated fogging and misting testing room. 

In the past, the EPA did not require disinfectant product registrants to submit data when fogging or misting product claims were initially registered, as the claims were not considered public health-related at that time. The EPA Pesticide Program now requires these manufacturers to substantiate the claims by submitting GLP-compliant data to demonstrate efficacy when the product is applied using a fogging or misting device, the article said.
