Our panel of technical experts are responsible for assessing the health and hygiene claims made by manufacturers in advertising, on packaging and on their websites. They review the evidence and advise whether the claims are adequately supported by the scientific evidence. Covering the full range of cleaning, infection control, hygiene and safety products, our endorsement shows that the claims made are genuine and have been scrutinised by the leading scientists in the field. If successful, organisations can use our accreditation logo to demonstrate to consumers and other organisations that their claims for the product have been independently verified.
Our product accreditation portfolio reflects the RSPH's commitment to good hand hygiene practices. Please see our factsheets below, which focus on the importance of hand washing and drying in maintaining hygiene.
Appropriate cleaning and disinfection helps to create a hygienic environment, prevents the spread of micro-organisms and reduces infection rates. Read more in our factsheets below.
