IHO List Of Disinfectants

Dear User,

Welcome to the online platform "IHO List Of Disinfectants". This is a list of effective disinfectants for professional applications in healthcare, laundry disinfection, food production, industrial/public areas and animal husbandry. This list has been published by the Industrieverband Hygiene und Oberflächenschutz (IHO) since 2008 and is available free of charge for use by users.


The platform is intended to help them to evaluate the properties of corresponding products simply and transparently. The focus of the preparations is, according to the specific requirements in each case, in the areas of health care, laundry disinfection, food hygiene, animal husbandry and general hygiene.

The statements regarding efficacy are based on tests in accordance with nationally and internationally accepted standards and guidelines. The main focus here is on evidence of efficacyin relation to adopted European standards. It is important that effective disinfection is always carried out according to the latest scientific and technical findings. It has been shown in the past that historically based, national test methods can no longer fully guarantee this.

Please note that the entries in the list are the sole responsibility of the respective companies. If you have any questions about the products, please contact the manufacturer/distributor directly. You will find more details in the preamble.

The listing companies are convinced that this list is a valuable contribution to the reasonable use of disinfectants in accordance with indications.
