A102 All Purpose Hard Surface Cleaner and Sanitiser
17 January 2014
A102 CERTIFICATION In this age of increasing legislation and new guidelines, it comes as no surprise that customers are being asked for certification to back efficacy claims when marketing hygiene products. This is why we at Assured Solutions Limited have paid to have our popular Cleaner and Sanitizer, A102, tested to EN 13697.
EN 13697 is a hard surface sanitising standard that is often recommended by the F.S.A. for cleaning food preparation areas. We believe it is more relevant than the soil suspension tests that are often performed as it measures performance on a hard surface which closer replicates its mode of application.
Although the standard test only uses four organisms (Psuedomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus hirae), to broaden it relevance to the food industry we have also included Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella typhimurium.
The tests were conducted under dirty conditions at a dilution of 1 part A102 to 5 parts water.
