Six products from five companies are now featured on the independently approved list. The disinfectants have been tested and proven to be effective against aquatic diseases affecting fresh water fish under the mandatory test conditions of 4°C ± 1°C test temperature, with a 30 minute ± 30 second contact time.

All products listed have met the requirements of the EU Biocides Regulation (528/2012) and national biocide legislation and had quality assurance checks done by an independent auditor.
