EN1276 Commercial Cleaning Chemical Supplies

You know it must be good thing if a cleaning product passes EN 1276.
But what exactly does it mean to the hygiene standards within your workplace?

Also known as the European Suspension Test, the precise, but rather dry
explanation is that BS EN 1276 is the European standard for the bactericidal
activity of chemical disinfectants. To pass this standard, products must
prove a bacteria kill rate of 99.999% with a 5 minute contact time.


When buying your cleaning products there will always be considerations on
price, the quality of its perfume and of course its cleaning efficiency. Ultimately,
the germ killing properties will be essential to you where standards of hygiene
cannot be compromised. In such instances, a cleaning product that passes
EN 1276 logo will provide that extra peace-of-mind knowing that the product
you are using is made to a specific standard and will actually do what it is
supposed to do.
