How can you determine if a disinfectant is actually approved by Health Canada?
The following is an excerpt directly from the Government of Canada website: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/disinfectants/covid-19/list.html
All disinfectants that have a drug identification number (DIN) have been approved for sale in Canada. While most disinfectants will work against coronavirus, the following list of hard-surface disinfectants are supported by evidence following drug review, demonstrating that they are likely to be effective and may be used against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by Health Canada. This is not a comprehensive list of all disinfectants and cleaning products that may be appropriate for use in public, institutional and household spaces. We will update this list with additional products as evidence is provided from industry applicants.
How to find out which products are on Health Canada’s list of hard-surface disinfectants with evidence against COVID-19
Locate the Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the disinfectant product label
Look for that number on the Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) list
TFN Vancouver only uses Vital Oxide for cleaning. The Drug Identification Number (DIN) for our disinfectant is: 02422654
