The VAH disinfectant list is published by the Association for Applied Hygiene (VAH) and applies to medical and public areas, nursing and community facilities as well as private households in the event of illness or care. It contains disinfectants for routine disinfection (prophylaxis) of hands, skin, surfaces, instruments and laundry – tested according to VAH standard methods. All listed products are bactericidal and levurozidal. Tuberculocity, mycobactericidality and fungicidality may be indicated. The list can be purchased for a fee and online or as a print edition through the mhp-Verlag (www.mhp-verlag.de).

In accordance with the European Biocides Regulation (EU Regulation No 528/2012), biocidal products may only contain biocidal active substances listed in a positive list, the so-called Union list of authorised biocidal active substances. Therefore, biocidal agents must undergo an authorisation procedure before the active ingredients can be used in biocidal products. All EU Member States are involved in this procedure. All EU Member States work closely together on the authorisation of biocidal agents and the authorisation of biocidal products. Each Member State has a competent authority. In Germany, this is the Federal Office for Chemicals at the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA).

EN 14885 “Master norm” of disinfection. – This European Standard specifies the European standards to which products have to conform in order to support the claims for microbicidal activity which are referred to in this European Standard. It also specifies terms and definitions which are used in European standards. It is applicable to products for which activity is claimed against the following microorganisms: vegetative bacteria (including mycobacteria and Legionella), bacterial spores, yeasts, fungal spores and viruses (including bacteriophages). It is intended to:
a)   enable manufacturers of products to select the appropriate standards to be used in order to provide data which support their claims for a specific product;
b)   enable users of the product to assess the information provided by the manufacturer in relation to the use for which they intend to use the product;
c)   assist regulatory authorities in assessing claims made by the manufacturer or by the person responsible for placing the product on the market.
It is applicable to products to be used in the area of human medicine, the veterinary area and in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas. In the area of human medicine, it is applicable to chemical disinfectants and antiseptics to be used in areas and situations where disinfection or antisepsis is medically indicated. Such indications occur in patient care in hospitals, in community medical facilities and dental institutions, in clinics of schools, of kindergartens and of nursing homes, and may also occur in the workplace and in the home. It may also include services such as in laundries and kitchens supplying products directly for the patient.

EN 14476 for the evaluation of virucidal activity in the medical area. – This European Standard applies to products that are used in the medical area in the fields of hygienic handrub, hygienic handwash, instrument disinfection by immersion, surface disinfection by wiping, spraying, flooding or other means and textile disinfection. It applies to areas and situations where disinfection is medically indicated. Such indications occur in patient care, for example in hospitals, in community medical facilities, and in dental institutions, in clinics of schools, of kindergartens, and of nursing homes and may occur in the workplace and in the home. It may also include services such as laundries and kitchens supplying products directly for the patients.

EN 16777 for surface disinfectants. – This document applies to products that are used in the medical area for disinfecting non-porous surfaces including surfaces of medical devices without mechanical action. It applies to areas and situations where disinfection is medically indicated. Such indications occur in patient care, for example in hospitals, in community medical facilities, and in dental institutions, in clinics of schools, of kindergartens, and of nursing homes and may occur in the workplace and in the home. It may also include services such as laundries and kitchens supplying products directly for the patients.

EN 17111 for instrument disinfectants. – This document applies to products that are used in the medical area for disinfecting instruments by immersion. It applies to areas and situations where disinfection is medically indicated. Such indications occur in patient care, for example in hospitals, in community medical facilities and in dental institutions, in clinics of schools, of kindergartens and of nursing homes and may occur in the workplace and in the home. It may also include services such as laundries and kitchens supplying products directly for the patients.

Some terms for classifying the antibiotoc efficacy of a disinfectant are generally known, while others are less common. The following overview explains the most important terms:

Bacteriocidal: acts against bacteria (e.g. E. coli, salmonella, staphylococcus aureus/MRSA, enterococcus/VRE, gram negative rod bacteria/MRGN). Bacteriocidality is the minimum requirement for a disinfectant.

Sporicidal: acts against bacterial spores (e.g. Clostridium difficile). Spores are very resistant permanent forms of certain bacterial species.

Virucidal: acts against all viruses, including Papilloma, Parvo- and Picornaviruses (Entero-, Rhino-, Coxackie-, Polio-, Hep-A and Parechoviruses).

Limited virucidal: acts against enveloped viruses (e.g. Corona, Influenza A, HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C viruses).

Limited viruzidal PLUS: acts against enveloped viruses as well as against unenveloped Adeno-, Noro- and Rota viruses.

Fungicidal: acts against fungi (e.g. Aspergillus) and their spores.

Levurocidal: acts against yeasts (e.g. Candida).

Mycobactericidal: acts against mycobacteria.

Tuberculocidal: acts against tuberculosis bacteria.

Disinfection: reduces the number of germs on the skin or in wounds and must not be effective towards all germs.

Sterilisation: eliminates all germs in the surrounding, on objects, surfaces and instruments. Skin and wounds cannot be sterilized!

Wound disinfectants:

  • must promote healing,
  • must have low toxicity and
  • must have low allergenicity.

Wound disinfectants can be used for skin disinfection but not all skin disinfectants are appropriate for wound disinfection, because they don’t fulfill at least one of the requirements above. For the same reason, many compounds used for wound disinfection in former times are reckoned obsolete today (e.g. mercury-containing solutions, boric acid, alcolol-containing iodine solution, potassium permanganate, silver nitrate, tea tree oil, or local antibiotics).

[Extract from American Chemistry Council, by Sarah J. Scruggs | March 11, 2020] “Viruses can be generally categorized into three groups by virus structure. This affects the effectiveness of disinfectants in killing the viruses.

* Enveloped viruses are easiest to kill. (An example is Influenza A Virus.)

* Large, non-enveloped viruses are more difficult to kill. (An example is Rotavirus.)

* Small, non-enveloped viruses are hardest to kill. (Examples are Rhinovirus and Norovirus.)

Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they are one of the easiest types of viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product.”

Aldehydes, Alcohols, Alkylamines and derivatives, Amphotensides, chlorine, bromine and iodine compounds, Chloramines, Glycol derivatives, Guanidine and derivatives, Alkalines, organic and anorganic Acids, heavy metal compounds, peroxide compounds, Phenoles and derivatives, Ethers, Pyridine derivatives, and quarternary ammonium compunds.

1: Individual items are forgotten, such as phones, keyboards, call buttons/systems or light switches.

2: Surfaces are dried immediately after disinfection or rinsed with water. As a result, the disinfectant’s engagement time is not adhered to (drying time = activation time).

3: Disinfection cloth is not changed or changed too rarely, which can lead to germ spreads.

4: Disinfectant cloth is pre-soaked with water or rinsed and reused between the work steps. Due to the dilution with water, the disinfectant effect is no longer guaranteed.

5: Disinfectant is mixed with soap or wahsing detergents. Such compounds can inhibit the biocidal properties of the disinfectant.

6: The required disinfecting order (to clean items with potentially high germ load at the end) is not adhered to.

  1. Parts of the hands (spaces between the fingers and wrists) are forgotten
  2. Rings, watches and jewelery are not removed before disinfecting
  3. Long and artificial nails are not disinfected thoroughly enough
  4. Wet hands are desinfected after washing without drying them before
  5. Hands are washed after disinfection
  6. Exposure time is not observed or hands are toweled after disinfection
[Extract from American Chemistry Council, by Sarah J. Scruggs | March 11, 2020] „According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cleaning visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best-practice measure for prevention of COVID-19. CDC recommends a thorough disinfection of sinks, toilets, doorknobs, and other hard surfaces that people frequently touch. Use antimicrobials on highly touched surfaces in your home. Also, keep in mind that germs and bacteria can hide in many places. Use a disinfectant on your countertops, sinks, cabinets, appliance surfaces, and all handles or drawer pulls. Finally, everyone should wash their hands regularly with soap and water. Use antimicrobials on highly touched surfaces in your office. No one wants to make a coworker ill, so use of antimicrobial products will disinfect equipment like computer keyboards, staplers, and desks. Use antimicrobials in highly populated areas. Use antimicrobials to disinfect armrests, seats, and other places while traveling on airplanes, trains and automobiles. One of the fastest ways to spread viruses or bacterial infections is to be trapped in close quarters with strangers.“
