The products BevistoCryl, BevistoCryl Wipes, BevistoSept and BevistoSept Wipes from BEVISTON were previously only available as medical devices. The use of these products was therefore
reserved for medical professionals only for the cleaning and disinfection of medical devices.
Whether a disinfectant is a medical device or a biocide often only determines the purpose and approval of the appropriate authority. Surface disinfectants can therefore be both a medical
device and a biocide insofar as the active substances contained in it comply with the biocide regulation (EU) no. 528/2012 or, in the case of active substances, a corresponding
disinfectant authorization procedure is active. But depending on the purpose of use different labels are used then.
As this applies for the surface disinfectants from BEVISTON* mentioned above, we are pleased to announce that these products are now also distributed as biocides by our sister company
Unlike medical devices, these biocides are accessible to all consumers and are suitable for cleaning and disinfecting non-medical surfaces such as sanitary and kitchen areas. (Information

* The products of BEVISTON mentioned above are biocides of main group 1 disinfectants, product type 2: disinfectants and algae control agents, which are not intended for direct human
and animal use, in accordance with Annex V to the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) no. 528/2012.
