Every SIQURA™ product has a different set of efficacy claims, so please refer to the product description for the comprehensive list of what each product has been tested against.
SIQURA Hospital Grade Disinfectant & Protectant has been assessed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, and following assessment of the data and label (which describes the product claims), the T.G.A. listed the product on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (the ARTG), as well as included the product on the list of disinfectants effective against COVID-19.
A lot of people ask us about our Hand Sanitiser and Protectant. It's a bit of a complicated answer — the Australian regulatory framework for hand products making antibacterial claims has long been split between hand sanitisers regulated under the Cosmetic Goods Act and hand antiseptics regulated by the T.G.A. Historically only products intended to be sold into hospitals or where medical procedures were taking place were listed on the ARTG., with the vast majority of products being regulated under the Cosmetic Goods Act.
Prior to COVID-19, there were only a handful of hand antiseptic products listed on the ARTG. When COVID-19 first occurred, the industry recognised that it could not possibly manage the supply of regulated hand antiseptics, and in order to maintain supply and access the T.G.A. issued a short term exemption to hospitals that allowed them to use products containing greater than 80% ethanol in healthcare settings, and subsequently many ‘alcohol’ based products have been registered under the OTC rapid pathway. This has created much confusion for both consumers and industry. The exemption does not entitle a manufacturer of alcohol hand antiseptics to make any medical ‘claim’ other than “Antiseptic hand rub”, “Kills Germs”, “Broad Spectrum” and “Fast Acting”. You may note that none of these claims are claims that the product kills viruses or is effective against COVID. To the best of our knowledge (information has been supplied by the T.G.A.) there are no hand antiseptic products on the ARTG today that can make a virucidal claim.
