How do you know what level?

The label must have a DIN number. If not, the disinfectant is not suitable for use in Canada.

LOW-LEVEL DISINFECTANTS are those with a DIN and a general “DISINFECTANT” claim. This level of disinfection may have varying claims against many different organisms.

To be classified an INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL DISINFECTANT, the label must have a DIN, a “Disinfectant” claim and also must have a Mycobactericidal, TB, or Tuberculocidal, claim.

HIGH-LEVEL DISINFECTANTS must have a DIN, a disinfectant claim, a “TB” claim and specifically state “high-level disinfectant” or “chemical sterilant” or “sporicidal”.
