IUVA Announces New Pharma Industry Task Force Focused on Disinfection

07 Aug 2023 9:02 PM | Gary Cohen (Administrator)

The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), has created a new Task Force dedicated to UV Disinfection of Surfaces in Pharma Industry Cleanroom Environments.

UV light is an established alternative to chemical disinfection, and this group will help facilitate ongoing discussions within the Pharma industry to share knowledge, industry proposals, research data, and pilot results. The IUVA Task Force plans to assemble a comprehensive summary of the current state-of-knowledge related to UV use in Pharma for clean room applications as a replacement for chemical disinfectants. This document will then serve as a starting point for further work and define research and regulatory priorities.

Learn more about UV technologies and IUVA at the 2023 IUVA World Congress, September 10-13, in Dubai. The event features technical presentations on the latest UV technologies and applications, as well as an exhibition showcasing UV disinfection solutions.

For more information on the New Pharma Industry Task Force, please contact, in c/o our Task Force Chair, Susan Schmidt, Roche/Genentech.
