Within our sector there are a certain mandatory rules and approvals, that must be followed by every disinfectant supplier. In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic there is a rise of companies offering somewhat similar products (self-sanitizing coatings). Therefore, we want to highlight that any self-sanitizing (disinfecting) coating needs to have an ECHA registration. If this registration cannot be demonstrated by the supplier or re-seller, then this coating and/or company is in violation with European law.
ECHA stands for European Chemical Agency and is the regulatory organization, whether a chemical product may be entered and sold on the market. Acquiring an ECHA registration will take several years. For more information about ECHA and their procedures please visit their website by clicking here.
