BS EN 13624:2021 - Tracked Changes

Tracked Changes. Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of fungicidal or yeasticidal activity in the medical area. Test method and requirements (phase 2, step 1)

Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing

BS EN 13624 is a key European standard that establishes guidelines for assessing the fungicidal, yeasticidal, and virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics, such as hand sanitizers, used in the medical area. By ensuring that these products show high efficacy against harmful bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and viruses, this standard plays a critical role in maintaining exceptional hygiene and infection control in healthcare settings.

To determine a product's comprehensive antimicrobial effectiveness, BS EN 13624 prescribes a quantitative suspension test that measures the product's ability to combat specific strains of bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. The standard provides a clear testing methodology and evaluation criteria, enabling manufacturers, regulatory bodies, and healthcare professionals to identify effective hand sanitisers and other disinfectants for medical environments.

Compliance with BS EN 13624 is crucial for upholding high standards of cleanliness and infection control in healthcare settings. By ensuring the effectiveness of hand sanitisers and other disinfectants against harmful bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and viruses, this standard contributes to the prevention of infections, the reduction of cross-contamination, and the promotion of a safe and sanitary environment for both patients and medical staff.
