Guidelines of the DVG

Guidelines on proving the efficacy of chemical disinfectants intended for veterinary medicine. They were developed for both the food sector and livestock breeding, and comprise methods for testing chemical disinfectants for their efficacy against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. A preparation can be included into the respective DVG disinfectants list, when two independent tests yield the prescribed requirements (expert opinion).
