The Food Standards Agency's Guidance Document 'E. coli O157: Control of Cross Contamination' requires Food Business Operators to ensure that, where necessary, they are using appropriate disinfectants that meet the requirements of British Standards BS EN 1276 or BS EN 13697 to disinfect food contact surfaces and equipment.
To the best of my knowledge all disinfectants listed on this page meet the requirements of British Standards BS EN 1276 or BS EN 13697. I have personally requested and verified either a BS EN 1276 or BS EN 13697 for every disinfectant on this list.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a definitive list. There are several other compliant disinfectants available on the market that are not on this list.
DETTOL SURFACE CLEANSER is not on this list. If you wish to use it as a disinfectant in a food business you should seek evidence from the manufacturers as to whether or not it complies.
