COVID-19 has caused a sharp rise in demand for hand sanitizers, disinfectants and other chemical cleaning products. At the same time, supply chain disruption has made it more difficult for the manufacturers of these products to source the required materials or find suitable alternatives. Additionally, manufacturers of other products are now being called upon to help meet this critical demand, and must navigate unfamiliar, and highly sophisticated regulations and policies to ensure end-product efficacy.
UL provides regulatory advisory services to help manufacturers understand the requirements and policies for products like hand sanitizers and many disinfecting products. Our online tools make it easy to quickly identify an alternate material or chemical, 24 hours a day, seven days a week from anywhere in the world. And if you need to source new materials, we’ll work with you to help ensure they will continue to meet all applicable safety and performance requirements.
Our science-backed testing and verification services can help expedite production of hand sanitizers and cleaning wipes. We provide guidance on manufacturing requirements and support development of the proper Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), the essential hazard communication documents required for workplaces producing and transporting these types of products.
Whether your company is stepping outside your normal production or adapting to an altered supply chain, we’ll help you understand and comply with rapidly evolving regulations, manage risks and help you efficiently bring your hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes or disinfecting products to market.
