“The information I needed in a digestible format”

That was the verdict of a distributor attending 'REACH for the cleaning supply chain', a conference organised by CHSA and BACS and supported by the British Cleaning Council and Tomorrow’s Cleaning.  

Distributors in the cleaning and hygiene sector gathered in the West Midlands to get answers to their questions on the implications of the REACH regulation. 

“The message I have taken away is that there is work to do to be absolutely certain we are fully compliant,” said Arco Product and Procurement Manager Jeff Snee, who as a member of the CHSA Council welcomed the delegates.  “I’ve now got the information I need to provide the right information to end users and future proof the business.”

Assured virucidal disinfection from Evans Vanodine

Evans Vanodine has introduced a new virucidal, unperfumed, disinfectant cleaner, Safe Zone Plus, which cleans and disinfects in one operation.

To substantiate a claim that a disinfectant is virucidal and is suitable for use in high risk areas, it must be tested according to the appropriate European test method. EN 14476:2013 + A1:2015 is used to demonstrate activity against Poliovirus, Adenovirus and Murine Norovirus; which will allow a claim against all enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. Safe Zone Plus has passed EN 14776 against these viruses and others of importance in the healthcare setting.
