Efficacy testing - Biocides: Disinfectants and antiseptics

Authorities as well as consumers have very strict requirements to the efficacy of the disinfectants that are used and they must be tested and approved according to European standards.
All disinfectants and antiseptic products are subject to the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). According to the European national authorities, all disinfectants must have a documented antimicrobial effect in compliance with current European standards.
