Products marketed with implied or explicit public health claims, such as specific antibacterial “kill” claims, need to be registered with the EU ECHA and or US EPA under FIFRA as biocidal/pesticidal products or devices and are not currently permitted. Please familiarize yourself with the relevant regulations concerning permissible claims.
