It is approved for several indirect food contact applications under 21 CFR 172.2105, 21 CFR 176.170 and 21 CFR 177.2800. It is an approved sanitizer that meets 21 CFR 178.101, and the EPA has also given approval under 40 CFR 180.1054 for washing raw foods that are to be consumed without processing.
ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Testing procedure：A predetermined concentration of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and/or Staphylococcus aureus is used as the test microorganism. The bacteria are exposed to the bactericidal agent at a concentration of ≤ 80% of the neat test solution at a temperature of 20 ± 1°C for 5 minutes. At the end of contact time, viable bacteria are enumerated. The bactericidal activity is calculated as a function of the viability of bacteria at the start of contact time.
Testing procedure：A predetermined concentration of Aspergillus niger or Candida albicans is used as the test organism. The test organism is exposed to the fungicidal agent (at a concentration of ≤ 80% of the neat test solution) at a temperature of 20 ± 1°C for 15 minutes. Other temperatures may be used in line with the standard (4°C, 10°C or 40°C) as well as other contact times (1, 5, 30 or 60 minutes) if required.At the endpoint the fungicidal activity is neutralised, and a series of dilutions are made.The number of viable colony forming units is determined using the pour plate method. The fungicidal activity is calculated as a function of the viability of fungi at the start of contact time.
Testing procedure：Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus hirae are the required test organisms. A sample of product is added to a test suspension of bacteria in the presence of an interfering substance. Organisms are exposed to the test solution at 20 ± 1°C for 5 minutes ± 10 seconds At the end of contact time a portion is withdrawn and the bactericidal action of the test substance is neutralised. The number of viable bacteria is determined following serial dilution and enumeration on an appropriate agar. The reduction in viability is calculated.
Testing procedure：In a carrier test, the test microorganism is added to the selected interfering substance and applied onto a metal disc. The metal disc represents an actual instrument or carrier of microorganism. The disc is then left to air-dry to simulate surface or carrier of microorganism. Next, test disinfectant is applied to the inoculated area for the duration of the contact time. The carrier is then submerged into a neutralizer solution to prevent continued activity. A sample of the neutralizer solution is then acquired, plated and incubated for 2 days. The number of test microorganism recovered is compared to the microorganism recovered from the control sample (where test microorganism is exposed to water instead of disinfectant) to determine if the test product is effective.
Testing procedure：In a phase 2 step 1 suspension test, 8 parts of the test product is added to 1-part test microorganism and 1-part interfering substance. The mixture is allowed to interact for the duration of the contact time. One part of the mixture is added to 8 parts of neutralizer and 1-part water for 5 minutes to halt antimicrobial activity. The final mixture is then acquired and incubated for 3 days to allow surviving spores (if any) to proliferate. The colony is counted and compared against the original culture size.
