COVID & Beyond: The Legal Nuances of Disinfectants and Sanitizers in 2020

November 18, 2020 11:00 am — 12:30 pm
Webinar Only

An ELI and Alston & Bird LLP Co-Sponsored Webinar

In the wake of COVID-19, there has been tremendous market growth for antimicrobial products, such as disinfectants and sanitizers, as well as consumer products with antimicrobial properties. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stringent requirements for antimicrobials and treated articles to ensure the safety of consumer products. Companies are increasingly facing complex compliance requirements as they look to manufacture, distribute, and sell new products in the pandemic landscape, and beyond.

For companies that want to manufacture, import, sell or use sanitizers and disinfectants, what are the key regulatory requirements they should focus on? Where in this process are companies prone to making mistakes? How should companies manage recalls of products that do not comply with the requirements? How are the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and EPA taking action to enforce regulations? How can companies quickly respond to the critical need for sanitizers and disinfectants and still be confident they are in compliance with federal and state laws?

Join ELI, Alston & Bird, and leading panelists as they dive into these questions and explore the legal nuances of disinfectants and sanitizers in 2020, and beyond.
