CSPA Seeks Public Comments On Microbiological Tests

The Consumer Specialty Products Association seeks public comments on “Microbiological Examination of Household and Institutional Products: Microbial Enumeration Test Guidelines.”

According to CSPA, the guideline was created for enumeration tests that will allow quantitative enumeration of mesophilic bacteria and fungi. These tests are designed to establish compliance to raw material, manufacturing intermediate and finished product microbiological specifications.

In addition, CSPA is also seeking comment on the following general guidance documents that were recently approved by the Division’s Microbiology subcommittee:
                                            i.  Microbiological Quality of Finished Products
                                           ii.  Microbiological Quality of Raw Materials

The guidelines do not apply to foods, drugs or cosmetics; nor do they apply to those organisms within products whose user benefit is established via viable microbial populations (e.g. biological drain/trap cleaners). Reviewers will have 30 days from this release to submit their comments or feedback to CSPA.

CSPA’s test methods and guidelines are used by those engaged in the formulation, manufacture or marketing of cleaning products. The availability of the test methods and guidelines are the result of a collaborative and consensus research and evaluation process with input from CSPA member companies and the public.

For questions or to request a copy of the guidance documents for review, contact CSPA’s Cleaning Products Division Staff Executive Tim Brown at tbrown@cspa.org. The finalized guidelines will be available for purchase individually via the CSPA website. In addition, once approved, the guidance documents will be included in the CSPA’s Cleaning Products Compendium.
