Description / Abstract:

This European Standard specifies a test method and the minimum requirements for bactericidal and yeasticidal activity of chemical disinfectant products that form a homogeneous, physically stable preparation when diluted with hard water – or in the case of ready-to-use products – with water.

This European Standard applies to products that are used in the medical area for disinfecting non-porous surfaces by wiping – regardless if they are covered by the EEC/93/42 Directive on Medical Devices or not.

This European Standard 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.

NOTE This method corresponds to a phase 2, step 2. test.

EN 14885 specifies in detail the relationship of the various tests to one another and to "use recommendations".
