Chemical Disinfectant

Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing

BS EN 13697 is a crucial European standard that outlines guidelines for evaluating the bactericidal, fungicidal, and yeasticidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used on hard, non-porous surfaces. This standard ensures that disinfectant products show high efficacy against harmful microorganisms, playing a vital role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in various sectors, including healthcare, food, and industrial environments.

The standard prescribes a quantitative non-porous surface test to measure a disinfectant’s performance against specific strains of bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. By providing a clear testing system and assessment measures, BS EN 13697 enables manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and end-users to determine the effectiveness of surface disinfectants and antiseptics.

Adherence to BS EN 13697 is essential for upholding high standards of surface hygiene and infection control in public and industrial settings. By ensuring the efficacy of disinfectants against harmful microorganisms, this standard aids in the prevention of contamination, the reduction of infection rates, and the promotion of a safe and sanitised environment for all.
