Chemical Disinfection

Technical Guidance Document #027

Guidance document No 16 and the later guidance document for catering operators clarified the requirements of the Food Standards Agency in respect of e coli 0157 and the use of commercial dishwashers.

This guidance document is intended to provide information for members about the use of Chlorine based dishwashing chemicals.

Whilst the Biocidal Products Directive requires independent data to prove that a product disinfects, it is widely accepted that Chlorine based detergents achieve a higher rate of disinfection than washing with standard chemicals where water temperature is used for sanitising.  Chlorine based detergents also offer potential for energy saving.
