In order to protect themselves and their families from the virus that causes COVID-19,” says EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler in a press release. “Through our efforts to expand List N, we are ensuring that Americans have a broad set of approved products to clean and disinfect surfaces to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus.”
Disinfectants can qualify for inclusion on List N in three ways:
– By passing a test against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
– Through demonstrating efficacy against a different coronavirus similar to SARS-CoV-2.
– By showing efficacy against a pathogen that is harder to kill than SARS-CoV-2.

Therefore, List N users should use the first two sections of a product’s registration number when searching List N. For example, if EPA Reg. No. 12345-12 is on List N, you can buy EPA Reg. No. 12345-12-2567 and know you’re getting an equivalent product.
