Webinar: 2:00 PM ET/ 11:00 AM PT

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to take its damaging toll, demand for disinfectants and sanitizers continues to exceed supply. More and more companies – many that had seen demand for their services plummet during the pandemic – are rushing to reinvent and rebuild their businesses by manufacturing, importing, marketing, and selling sanitizer and disinfectant products.

The EPA and FDA are taking a hard look at these products and the companies that make them. Requirements for antimicrobial products include regulations governing drugs and devices, pesticides, imports, and hazardous waste, and the consequences for noncompliance are significant.

Join Alston & Bird environmental and FDA attorneys Elise Paeffgen, Kevin Minoli, Brendan Carroll, and Sam Jockel in this webinar providing practical and up-to-date guidance to help companies answer these questions:

  • How can companies quickly respond to the critical need for sanitizers and disinfectants and still be confident that they are complying with federal and state laws?
  • What is the difference between sanitizers and disinfectants and what does that difference mean for you?
  • Who regulates sanitizers and disinfectants?
  • What are the key regulatory requirements companies that want to manufacture, import, sell, or use sanitizers and disinfectants should know?
  • When are companies most often making mistakes?
  • Can the claims you make about your product create litigation and enforcement risk?
  • Where is the government taking action to enforce the regulations and what actions have they taken?
  • How should you respond if the government determines your product does not comply with the regulations – should you recall a noncompliant product?
