Manufacturers of hand sanitizers and hard-surface disinfectants using technical-grade ethanol

These companies have been granted temporary authorization by Health Canada to manufacture and sell the specific hand sanitizers and hard-surface disinfectants listed below, which may contain technical-grade ethanol. Sale or distribution by an unauthorized supplier (not on this list) is not permitted and may be subject to enforcement action.

Products on this list do not necessarily contain technical-grade ethanol. Manufacturers may continue to produce the hard-surface disinfectants or hand sanitizer using food or pharmaceutical grade ethanol, switching to technical-grade only when higher quality grades are unavailable.

No hard-surface disinfectant or hand sanitizer containing technical-grade ethanol may be produced or distributed prior to receiving Health Canada’s approval. A No Objection Letter will be issued once the requested information has been reviewed and approved, at which time the production and distribution of the product may commence.

The companies listed are not suppliers of technical-grade ethanol.

The best way to identify whether a hand sanitizer or a hard-surface disinfectant contains technical-grade ethanol is to refer to the product label. The product and the external package labels must clearly indicate that it contains technical-grade ethanol.
