COVID-19 Disinfectants according to Environmental Protection Agency
Here are the list of qualified COVID-19 disinfectants to fight the novel coronavirus according to United States Environmental Protection Agency. https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-03/documents/sars-cov-2-list_03-03-2020.pdf
Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a list of EPA-registered COVID-19 Disinfectants that have qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
“Using the correct COVID-19 Disinfectants is an important part of preventing and reducing the spread of illnesses along with other critical aspects such as hand washing,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. EPA is providing this important information in a public and transparent manner on COVID-19 Disinfectants to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.”
Application Information for Registrants Wanting an Emerging Viral Pathogen Claim
A company can apply for an emerging viral pathogens claim, even before an outbreak occurs, based on previously EPA-approved claims for harder-to-kill viruses. EPA reviews the supporting information and determines if the claim is acceptable. Once approved, a company can make certain off-label claims as specified in the policy in the event of an outbreak such as the SARS-CoV-2. For instance, the company can include an efficacy statement on:
- technical literature distributed to health care facilities, physicians, nurses, public health officials;
- non-label-related websites;
- consumer information services; and
- social media sites.
OFFICE OF CHEMICAL SAFETY AND POLLUTION PREVENTION
An individual pesticide product may be marketed and sold under a variety of names. If you are seeking additional information about a pesticide product, refer to the EPA Registration Number (EPA Reg. No.), found on the product label, not the brand name. When purchasing a product for use against a specific pathogen, check the EPA Reg. No. versus the products included on this list.
All EPA-registered pesticides must have an EPA Registration Number. Alternative brand names have the same EPA Reg. No. as the primary product. The EPA Reg. No. of a primary product consists of two set of numbers separated by a hyphen, for example EPA Reg. No. 12345-12. The first set of numbers refers to the company identification number, and the second set of numbers following the hyphen represents the product number.
In addition to primary products, distributors may also sell products with identical formulations and identical efficacy as the primary products. Although distributor products frequently use different brand names, you can identify them by their three-part EPA Reg. No. The first two parts of the EPA Reg. No. match the primary product, plus a third set of numbers that represents the Distributor ID number. For example, EPA Reg. No. 12345-12-2567 is a distributor product with an identical formulation and efficacy to the primary product with the EPA Reg. No. 12345-12.
Information about listed products is current as indicated by the dates on this list. If you would like to review the product label information for any of these products, please visit our product label system. Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by EPA.
