Federal Pesticide Registration
Sanitizers, disinfectants, and sterilizers are regulated as pesticides at the federal level by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). During the product registration process, the EPA evaluates: the ingredients of the pesticide, the particular site where it is to be used, the amount, frequency, and timing of its use, and storage and disposal practices against a variety of potential human health and environmental effects associated with the use of the product.
