Outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a sudden upsurge in demand of disinfectant and sanitizers around the globe and in wake of it, the fraudulent products are circulating all over the market.

EPA(Environmental Protection Agency) has been warning and issuing guidelines for manufacturers as well as consumers to be aware of such products and has made its legal requirements easier and faster to avoid shortages of effective ingredients to meet supply chain demands. 

EPA defines disinfectants as pesticide: “Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest.”

It is based on the intent of the product also to define a specific product as a pesticide.

Any cleaning product (disinfectant or sanitizer) comes under the category of pesticide, which needs to be registered with EPA prior to distribution and sale in US market or any market that abide by EPA rulings.
