Sanitizers and disinfectants in the context of a health crisis
In the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global demand for hand sanitizers and disinfectants has risen sharply. Indeed, disinfecting hands and surfaces is a solution that can eliminate microorganisms including viruses and thus limit the spread of disease.
Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued several recommendations in order to increase the production of these hand sanitizers and disinfectants aiming at simplifying regulatory procedures and thus accelerate the placing on the market of these products. Nonetheless, these derogations remain temporary and still require country-specific compliance actions.
In order to allow the greatest number of people to put this type of products on the market, we will present what derogations exist in Canada and in the United States.
