USA: EPA continues to increase availability of disinfectants
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has continued to increase the availability of disinfectants for use against the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Their most recent temporary guidance allows for registrants to notify EPA of certain formulation and manufacturing facility changes and immediately release the product for sale without waiting for EPA approval. This guidance builds on the March 31, 2020 amendment to the Pesticide Registration Notice 98-10.
The EPA has also added new disinfectants to List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2, bringing it’s total to 374. Nine additional chemicals have also been added to the commodity inert ingredients list.
