Experiences with In-Situ Active Chlorine
In February 2022, Kerona Scientific organised the Dublin Biocide Symposium with many interesting presentations from various representatives from Industry and Ministries.
Nick Meakin, CEO at Aqualution Systems, brought a fascinating presentation on “Experiences with In-Situ Active Chlorine”.
Active chlorine is an in situ active substance (i.e., it is generated at the point of use from one or more precursors) and so the substance is defined by reference to its precursors. However, Active chlorine is a special case in that one such precursor, sodium chloride, can be sourced from open sources. In the case of Active chlorine generated from NaCl by electrolysis, either the sodium chloride manufacturer/importer, the electrolysis machine manufacturer, or the company placing the system on the market can be on the Article 95 list of approved suppliers.
Nick closed his presentation remarking the importance of being collaborative and being in contact with the evaluating Competent Authority (eCA) during the evaluation process. He also spoke of the importance of being careful when cooperating with data owners of related dossiers, as it is very easy to inadvertently and adversely impact other applicants.
