How does EPA know that the products on List N work on SARS-CoV-2?
EPA expects the products on List N to kill SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, because they:
- Demonstrate efficacy against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19);
- Demonstrate efficacy against a pathogen that is harder to kill than SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19); or
- Demonstrate efficacy against a different human coronavirus similar to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
EPA expects all products on List N to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to label directions.
- I can’t tell if the product I’m interested in is on the list or not. Can you help me?
- Why are some products listed here but not on other disinfectants lists compiled by other organizations?
- I have a question about a word or phrase on the List N website. I’m not sure how something on List N helps me fight COVID-19.
- What does the column “Follow the disinfection directions and preparation for the following virus” mean? Why are viruses other than the human coronavirus listed in that column?
- What does the column “emerging viral pathogen claim” indicate in List N?
- Some of the products on List N say “Food Contact.” What does that mean?
- I want to use a product to kill SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) but it isn’t on List N. Is it effective against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)?
