Your direct access to the VAH List of Disinfectants

The Association for Applied Hygiene is a recognized authority for quality assurance in prophylactic disinfection in Germany. VAH assesses and certifies disinfectants and publishes these in its VAH List of Disinfectants with information on their active substances, activity spectra, the tested concentrations and contact times. All VAH-certified products also meet European standards.

The VAH List provides guidance for the selection of chemical disinfectants in the application areas of hygienic hand wash, hand and skin antisepsis, (hard) surface disinfection, disinfection of instrument and medical devices by immersion, and textile disinfection. VAH-certified disinfectants are recommended for use in all institutions and facilities where disinfection is necessary and medically indicated as a means for infection prevention.

The regularly updated online platform is available in English free of charge and is suitable for use on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as well as laptops and desktop computers.
