Test & Certification

In Germany, the Disinfectants Commission of the Association for Applied Hygiene (VAH) ensures that the user can avail of procedures that meet the stipulated quality requirements. These requirements are based on the tried and tested standard methods of the German Society of Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) as well as on European standards. They take account of the different requirements dictated by the various fields of application, reflecting the quality assurance system in a transparent manner. Special emphasis is increasingly placed on retesting the products already available on the market. In multi-center trials, the inter- and intralaboratory fluctuations in the test results are ascertained, the quest for suitable standard substances intensified, culture conditions and detection procedures are standardized, and the test procedures and potential influence factors analyzed in detail. The aim here is to devise test procedures that will yield a reproducible and reliable result independently of the test location and meet the requirements of everyday practice. Attention must be paid to, inter alia, the prevailing microbial spectrum in quality and quantity, the prevailing organic and inorganic load as well as material and surface properties. The test procedures are gradually brought into line with the current stock of scientific knowledge, because such a task calls for conscientiousness, tenacity and patience as well as continuous dialog between research, industry and practice.

The Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA) is an independent executive agency of the United States federal government tasked with environmental protection matters.

EPA works to ensure that:

  • Americans have clean air, land and water;
  • National efforts to reduce environmental risks are based on the best available scientific information;
  • Federal laws protecting human health and the environment are administered and enforced fairly, effectively and as Congress intended;
  • Environmental stewardship is integral to U.S. policies concerning natural resources, human health, economic growth, energy, transportation, agriculture, industry, and international trade, and these factors are similarly considered in establishing environmental policy;
  • All parts of society--communities, individuals, businesses, and state, local and tribal governments--have access to accurate information sufficient to effectively participate in managing human health and environmental risks;
  • Contaminated lands and toxic sites are cleaned up by potentially responsible parties and revitalized; and
  • Chemicals in the marketplace are reviewed for safety.


National authority for the protection against sanitary risks, noted for its technical, operational and regulatory capacity as well as for its commitment to the human and professional development of its personnel. COFEPRIS will establish and implement policies, programs and projects at the level of best international practice, in effective coordination with the different actors from the public, private and social spheres, to prevent and address health risks, thus contributing to the health of the population.

All the certifications and testing were conducted by independent laboratories and accredited scientists. Supervised public places case studies have shown that Bacoban adheres to the highest disinfection standards and can significantly reduce contamination and cleaning time up to 50%. The leading Fresenius Institute and the SGS Institute in Hamburg have carried out most of the certification testing. 

Manufactured in Germany under the new and standardised VAH Directive for the disinfection of medical areas and all types of surfaces in hospitals, doctor practices, rehabilitation centres and retirement homes.  This includes severe risk areas such as pediatrics, intensive care, hemodialysis and sterilisation and areas demanding effective and long-lasting disinfection.
