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

Health Canada has granted temporary authorization to the companies listed below to manufacture and sell hand sanitizers and/or hard-surface disinfectants that may contain technical-grade ethanol. Products on this list don't necessarily contain technical-grade ethanol, as manufacturers may continue to produce the hand sanitizer or hard-surface disinfectants using food- or pharmaceutical-grade ethanol. They may switch to technical-grade only when higher-quality grades aren't available.

These companies are not suppliers or distributors of technical-grade ethanol. They must not re-sell and/or blend technical-grade ethanol, purchased from approved suppliers or distributors, to manufacture hand sanitizers and/or hard-surface disinfectants.

Before manufacturing and/or selling hand sanitizers or hard-surface disinfectants containing technical-grade ethanol, these product licence holders must:

Some technical-grade ethanol has higher levels of impurities. They aren't suitable for use by children and aren't recommended for use by pregnant or breastfeeding women. We encourage consumers to read the product label on how the product may be used.

You can identify hand sanitizers or hard-surface disinfectants containing technical-grade ethanol with higher levels of impurities (acetaldehyde levels greater than 75 ppm) by their product labels. The labels will include this information:

The risk assessment summary report contains the information we used in our decision to allow the temporary use of technical-grade ethanol in hand sanitizers and hard-surface disinfectants.

Companies not on this list may face compliance and enforcement action if they manufacture or sell hand sanitizers or hard-surface disinfectants containing technical-grade ethanol without authorization. You can find information about non-compliant products in the recall advisory.
