Regulatory Overview of Antimicrobial Product Public Health Claims in the United States

Antimicrobial products intended to protect the public health are regulated as pesticides in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Before manufacturers can sell pesticides in the United States, EPA must evaluate the pesticides thoroughly to ensure that they meet federal safety standards to protect human health and the environment.


Scott Steinagel, Director of Microbiology Operations at ATS Labs, has written an interesting and information paper titled "Regulatory Overview of Antimicrobial Product Public Health Claims in the United States".

The outline of the paper is:

"This white paper, featuring a convenient Test Guide For Antimicrobial Public Health Claims and 3 Key Considerations When Developing an Antimicrobial Product, is intended to provide a general overview on the current regulation and registration of antimicrobial pesticides designed to protect the public health within the United States. This white paper is not intended to necessarily represent or supersede any positions held by applicable regulatory bodies."
