The Paragon Group offers many chemical products that kill bacteria to European Standard and meet with the requirements applied to food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas.
These standards for chemical disinfection are not new to industry, however, the insistence on their use by the standard assessing authorities is.
Paragon can provide information and advice on how best to comply with Environmental Health Officers requests on British Standards (BS EN).
BS EN 1276 is the European standard for the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants as proof of effective infection control against harmful micro-organisms such as MRSA, Salmonella, E.Coli, Flu Virus (H1N1) and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. In order to pass this standard, products have been tested by an independent laboratory and must prove a bacteria kill rate of 99.999% within 5 minutes.
BS EN 13704 tests the sporicidal action against C. Difficile, spores which can continue to survive and breed in harsh conditions and are therefore very difficult to kill using traditional disinfectants.
BS EN 1040 tests the effectiveness against gram positive and gram negative bacteria and is aimed at determining the bactericidal activity of disinfectants and antiseptics.
Effective cleaning gets rid of bacteria on hands, equipment and surfaces and helps to stop harmful bacteria from spreading onto food.
In many cases it is vital that the products you use clean effectively and that disinfectants have been successfully tested against harmful micro-organisms.
Our cleaning products tested to the European specification for disinfection cover the majority of cleaning tasks required in food and care premises, providing you with a core selection that comply with current hygiene legislation.
