RECENT PROPAGANDA, BULLS AND FAKE NEWS
In recent weeks, the ozone sector has experienced exponential growth, promoting that companies that do not meet the requirements to sell ozone and ozone generators entry into the market.
Ozone is a very powerful disinfectant. It must be treated professionally in order to be effective, and with knowledgeable so that there is no harm to human health or the environment.
If you are about to buy ozone, we would recommend you to check that the manufacturer meets the legal requirements for its commercialization. They are referred to in the following link:
https://www.mscbs.gob.es/ciudadanos/saludAmbLaboral/prodQuimicos/sustPreparatorias/bi ocidas/requisinotifica.htm, this is:
- Notification form for biocidal products not subject to registration.
- Comply with the established in the Article 95.2 of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 regarding the suppliers of the active substance (s) included in the ECHA list. To do so, they must complete the self-certification model, using the appropriate template. The current exponential growth of the ozone sector has generated a great diversity of opinions. Many of them are positive, but many others are based in false or inaccurate statements and are intended t discredit the positive effects of the use of this biocide in industries and society in general. For those discrediting attempts based on false or inaccurate manifestations, ZonoSistem will initiate the corresponding legal actions to stop them.
Ozone is a proven disinfection technology, with many years of experience, used in hundreds of industries around the world. It has significant advantages over other disinfectants since it does not require any transportation, packaging or handling of the chemical substance. Ozone generates multiple benefits for the industry and society in general.
