Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics - Quantitative non-porous surface test for the evaluation of bactericidal and/or fungicidal activity of chemical disinfectants used in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas - Test method and requirements without mechanical action (phase 2, step 2)

This European Standard specifies a test method (phase 2/step 2) and the minimum requirements for bactericidal and/or fungicidal activity of chemical disinfectants that form a homogeneous physically stable preparation in hard water and that are used in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas, excluding areas and situations where disinfection is medically indicated and excluding products used on living tissues.
The scope of this European Standard applies at least to the following :
a)   Processing, distribution and retailing of :
1)   Food of animal origin :
   milk and milk products ;
   meat and meat products ;
   fish, seafood and products ;
   eggs and egg products ;
   animal feeds ;
   etc.
2)   Food of vegetable origin :
   beverages ;
   fruits, vegetables and derivatives (including sugar distillery) ;
   flour, milling and backing ;
   animal feeds ;
   etc.
b)   Institutional and domestic areas :
   catering establishments ;
   public areas ;
   public transports ;
   schools ;
   nurseries ;
   shops ;
   sports rooms ;
   waste container (bins) ;
   hotels ;
   dwellings ;
   clinically non sensitive areas of hospitals ;
   offices ;
   etc.
c)   Other industrial areas :
   packaging material ;
   biotechnology (yeast, proteins, enzymes...) ;
   pharmaceutical ;
   cosmetics and toiletries ;
   textiles ;
   space industry, computer industry ;
   etc.
Using this European Standard, it is possible to determine the bactericidal or fungicidal activity of the undiluted product. As three concentrations have to be tested, in the active to non active range, dilution of the product is required and, therefore, the product shall form a homogeneous stable preparation in hard water.
NOTE 1   The method described is intended to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances on bacteria and/or fungi in the conditions in which they are used.
NOTE 2   This method corresponds to a phase 2/step 2 test (see annex E).

EN 13697:2015 (E) 3 Foreword This document (EN 13697:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 216 “Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2015 and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by October 2015. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document supersedes EN 13697:2001. The changes between this edition and EN 13697:2001 are the following: — interfering substance has been changed from 0,03 % bovine albumin to 0,85 % skimmed milk (see Clause 4, Table 1) for Pseudomonas aeruginosa under clean conditions only; — A. brasiliensis (ex A. niger) spore preparation has been updated in order to harmonize this step with the QST fungicidal test method amendment issued in 2012 (see 5.4.1.3 b)); — Calculations of the weighed means and of the results have been modified in order to be harmonized with new CEN TC 216 standards (see 5.4.1.5, 5.5.2, 5.5.3 and 5.6); — Other paragraphs have been harmonized to new CEN TC 216 standards (e.g. preparation of hard water, 5.2.2.7). Results obtained from the previous standard for Aspergillus niger need to be repeated to take into account the new spore morphology requirement and the change in interfering substance. According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

EN 13697:2015 (E) 4 Introduction This European Standard describes a surface test method for establishing whether a product proposed as a disinfectant in the fields described in Clause 1 has or does not have bactericidal and/or fungicidal or yeasticidal activity on non-porous surfaces. This European Standard has been revised in order to modify the interfering substance under “clean conditions” adopted for P. aeruginosa; in order to modify the calculation of N, NC, NT, Nc, Na and consequently the final results and to harmonize the standard with the other recent CEN TC 216 standards. The laboratory test closely simulates practical conditions of application. Chosen conditions (contact time, temperature, organisms on surfaces ...) reflect parameters which are found in practical situations including conditions which may influence the action of disinfectants. Each use concentration found from this test corresponds to defined experimental conditions. The conditions are intended to cover general purposes and to allow reference between laboratories and product types. However, for some applications the recommendations of use of a product can differ and therefore additional test conditions need to be used. SIST EN 13697:2015

EN 13697:2015 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies a test method (phase 2/step 2) and the minimum requirements for bactericidal and/or fungicidal or yeasticidal activity of chemical disinfectants that form a homogeneous physically stable preparation in hard water or – in the case of ready-to-use products – with water in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas, excluding areas and situations where disinfection is medically indicated and excluding products used on living tissues. The scope of this European Standard applies at least to the following: a) Processing, distribution and retailing of: 1) Food of animal origin: i) milk and milk products; ii) meat and meat products; iii) fish, seafood and products; iv) eggs and egg products; v) animal feeds; vi) etc. 2) Food of vegetable origin: i) beverages; ii) fruits, vegetables and derivatives (including sugar distillery); iii) flour, milling and backing; iv) animal feeds; v) etc. b) Institutional and domestic areas: 1) catering establishments; 2) public areas; 3) public transports; 4) schools; 5) nurseries; 6) shops; 7) sports rooms; 8) waste container (bins); SIST EN 13697:2015

EN 13697:2015 (E) 6 9) hotels; 10) dwellings; 11) clinically non sensitive areas of hospitals; 12) offices; 13) etc. c) Other industrial areas: 1) packaging material; 2) biotechnology (yeast, proteins, enzymes...); 3) pharmaceutical; 4) cosmetics and toiletries; 5) textiles; 6) space industry, computer industry; 7) etc. Using this European Standard, it is possible to determine the bactericidal or fungicidal or yeasticidal activity of the undiluted product. As three concentrations are tested, in the active to non active range, dilution of the product is required and, therefore, the product forms a homogeneous stable preparation in hard water. EN 14885 specifies in detail the relationship of the various tests to one another and to use recommendations. NOTE 1 The method described is intended to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances on bacteria and/or fungi in the conditions in which they are used. NOTE 2 This method cannot be used to evaluate the activity of products against mycobacteria. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

The referenced test conditions are by no means intended as requirements for the use of a product, nor as requirements for the evaluation and acceptance of products by regulatory authorities. The recommended contact time for the use of the product is within the responsibility of the manufacturer. Where appropriate (specific purposes), additional specific bactericidal/yeasticidal/fungicidal activity shall be determined under other conditions of time, temperature, additional strains and interfering substances in order to take into account intended specific use conditions. NOTE For the additional conditions, the concentration defined as a result can be lower than the one obtained under the obligatory test conditions. SIST EN 13697:2015

EN 13697:2015 (E) 8 5 Test methods 5.1 Principle A test suspension of bacteria or fungi in a solution of interfering substances is inoculated onto a test stainless steel surface and dried. A prepared sample of the product under test is applied in a manner which covers the dried film. The surface is maintained at a specified temperature for a defined period of time. The surface is transferred to a previously validated neutralization medium so that the action of the disinfectant is immediately neutralized. The number of surviving organisms which can be recovered from the surface is determined quantitatively. The number of bacteria or fungi on a surface treated with hard water in place of the disinfectant is also determined and the reduction in viable counts attributed to the product is calculated by difference. 5.2 Materials and reagents 5.2.1 Test organisms The bactericidal activity shall be evaluated using the following four strains: — Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15 4421); — Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6 538; — Enterococcus hirae ATCC 10 541; — Escherichia coli ATCC 10 536. The fungicidal or yeasticidal activity shall be evaluated using the following two strains: — Candida albicans ATCC 10 231; — Aspergillus brasiliensis (ex A. niger) ATCC 16 404. If required for specific applications, additional strains may be chosen from, for example: — Salmonella typhimurium ATCC 13 311; — Lactobacillus brevis DSM 6 235; — Enterobacter cloacae DSM 6 234; — Saccharomyces cerevisiae (for breweries) or ATCC 9 763 or DSM 1 333; — Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus (for breweries) DSM 70 487. NOTE See Annex A for corresponding strain numbers in some other culture collections. If additional strains are used, they shall be incubated under optimum growth conditions (temperature, time, atmosphere) and noted in the test report. If the additional strains selected do not correspond to the specified strains, their suitability for supplying inocula of sufficient concentration shall be verified. If the additional strains tested are not classified at a
