Disinfection of food contact surfaces is a key step in all plant hygiene programs within Good Hygiene Practice (GHP) as required by Council Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 and 853/2004. The use and application of disinfectants is controlled by a number of specific pieces of legislation such as The Biocidal Product Regulations (BPR) and a number of Industry wide Codes of Practice such as The British Retail Consortium Global Food Standard V5.

Disinfection performance, the final step in a hygiene program, is dependant on a number of variables:

  • The effectiveness of the preceding steps in cleaning program
  • The method and effectiveness of the product application
  • The choice of the disinfectant used
  • The post disinfection activities in the plant that can lead to recontamination
