As COVID-19 cases continue to proliferate, so do the number of disinfectants, sanitizers and cleaning products that are claimed to be effective against the virus.   This presentation addresses the regulation of COVID-19 efficacy claims for cleaners, sanitizer and sterilizer products treated as “pesticides” by the US EPA under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (“FIFRA”) and for products treated as “drugs” by the FDA under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).  Importantly, products in both categories may be used in the workplace as well as the home. 

The speakers will discuss the standards applied by US EPA for determining that a product is a “pesticide” and by the FDA to determine that a product is a “drug.”  The speakers then will explain what claims are allowed and what claims are prohibited, and what information they should look for in screening these products for use in the workkplace.  The speakers will summarize policies that US EPA has published recently to facilitate the registration of products with valid COVID-19 claims, and steps that EPA and FDA have taken to enforce labeling standards.
