The rising demand for antimicrobial technologies is largely driven by cleanliness concerns and the need for longer-lasting products. From activewear to medical equipment, antimicrobials have found widespread use in various applications to combat microbial growth, known to cause staining, odours and premature product degradation.

The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) in Europe and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States strictly regulate antimicrobials, setting the parameters for organizations to follow and controlling the type of applications for which antimicrobials can be used.

Speaking to Chemical Industry Journal, Microban International provides an overview of the antimicrobial regulatory landscape and highlights the implications chemical manufacturers should consider when choosing an antimicrobial partner.
