Price from:
€ 74.64


This European Standard specifies a test method and the minimum requirements for virucidal activity of chemical disinfectant and antiseptic products that form a homogeneous physically stable preparation when diluted with hard water, or – in the case of ready-to-use-products – with water.

This European Standard applies to products that are used in the veterinary area on non-porous surfaces without mechanical action i.e. in the breeding, husbandry, production, veterinary care facilities, transport and disposal of all animals except when in the food chain following death and entry to the processing industry.

EN 14885 specifies in detail the relationship of the various tests to one another and to "use recommendations".

NOTE 1 – The method described is intended to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances under the conditions in which they are used.

NOTE 2 – This method corresponds to a Phase 2 Step 2 test.

NOTE 3 – Using this European Standard, it is possible to determine the virucidal activity of the undiluted product.

NOTE 4 – This standard uses Porcine Parvovirus because Bovine Enterovirus Type 1 (ECBO) virus used in the suspension test EN 14675 cannot be used for surface testing because of its loss of titre during drying. Porcine

Parvovirus has comparable resistance to ECBO virus.
