EPA Updates List Of Disinfectants For Combating Bloodborne Pathogens

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has combined and updated information from several disinfectant lists to create a new list titled EPA-Registered Antimicrobial Products Effective Against Bloodborne Pathogens (HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C) [List S].

According to the EPA, the newly released list combines product information from the agency’s following former disinfectant lists:

  • List C: EPA’s Registered Antimicrobial Products Effective Against Human HIV-1 Virus;
  • List D: EPA’s Registered Antimicrobial Products Effective Against Human HIV-1 and Hepatitis B Virus;
  • List E: EPA’s Registered Antimicrobial Products Effective Against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Human HIV-1, and Hepatitis B Virus; and,
  • List F: EPA’s Registered Disinfectants for use Against Hepatitis C.

“These four lists are now retired and will be redirected to the new List S. Not only does the revised list include products that are effective against HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C, but it also specifies which products are not effective against one or more of these viruses,” according to the EPA.

For more information and to view the complete list of products, visit the EPA’s website.
