What is this standard about?

This document specifies a test method and the minimum requirements for virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants that form a homogeneous physically stable preparation when diluted with hard water – or in the case of ready-to-use products - with water.

This document applies to products that are used in the medical area for disinfecting non-porous surfaces including surfaces of medical devices without mechanical action.

This document 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 1 The method described is intended to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances on viruses in the conditions in which they are used.

NOTE 2 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”.
