Chemical substances are regulated all around the world, and substances that control micro-organisms are in some countries also subject to an additional layer of regulation. LIFE will work with you to identify the regulations that apply to your products, and then ensure that all such requirements are met.
Antimicrobial substances are regulated in the United States under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), which is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and in the European Union under the Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012 (BPR), which is administered by the European Chemical Agency (ECHA). LIFE offers full ranges of products compliant with both FIFRA and the BPR.
Antimicrobial substances used in food and drinking water contact polymers are furthermore subject to special regulation both in the United States and in the European Union. LIFE offers a number of antimicrobial products that comply with such regulations on both sides of the Atlantic.
