Countries in Europe are now authorizing their citizens to resume daily activities and welcoming tourists back in their cities.

The hospitality industry, which includes hotels, restaurants and pubs, approaches the reopening phase understanding that it is critical to quickly adapt to the new normal. They know that it is important to demonstrate a commitment to meet hygiene standards in order to protect consumers, travelers and team members.


Disinfectants and EU legislation: The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR)
Biocidal products protect humans from harmful organisms like viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms. Hotels and restaurants increasingly require specific categories of disinfectants. In Europe, these products are regulated by the BRP — Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) 5282012.
