VOC Compliance Deadline for Disinfectants January 1, 2025

 In Disinfectants & Sanitizers, Regulatory Affairs


If you have registered Disinfectant Drugs in Canada, you have recently received an email from Health Canada reminding you of Canada’s new Volatile Organic Compound Concentration Limits for Certain Products Regulations coming into effect for disinfectant products on Jan. 1st, 2025.

It is critical that disinfectant importers and manufacturers in Canada are aware of this pending deadline and plan accordingly.  If products require reformulation to comply, they will likely require confirmatory efficacy testing. This testing can take several months so we want to help you be prepared.

Dell Tech is providing a new service for disinfectant products to evaluate and report on the following:

  • Classification of your product into the correct category and subcategory with appropriate limits
  • VOC content calculation
  • Available next steps based on the VOC content including possible applicable exemptions, reformulations, unit trades or letter of authorization for retailer/distributors

Our goal is to help your company with Canadian VOC compliance while ensuring that your distribution remains uninterrupted.

You can read the full regulations here.

Talk to our team today. Give your company the runway it needs to ensure your disinfectant products are compliant with Canada’s VOC regulations without disruption to your business goals.


Dell Tech has provided professional, confidential consulting services to the specialty chemical 

industry in Canada, the USA, Europe, and Asia for the last 40 years.
