EPA Publishes List of Registered Disinfectants for Use against Ebola
EPA recently released a list of registered antimicrobial products that meet CDC’s interim guidance for environmental infection control in hospitals for the Ebola virus on hard, non-porous surfaces. According to EPA, use of the listed EPA-registered products consistent with the product labeling complies with OSHA’s requirements for occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. EPA notes that its list is not comprehensive, and that it will update the list with additional products as needed.
The list is one of several published by the agency that include antimicrobial products that are effective against the most common emerging pathogens registered by EPA for healthcare use.
