Probably more a warning to venues with crowds or audiences but we now have a company pushing the concept of applying Hypochlorous Acid in a spray tunnel.

This "pennies" treatment is on the list of active ingredients approved by ECHA under the Biocidal Products Regulation BUT the decision adopted in June 2020 is for use in liquid form for direct application as a hand/foot/skin disnfectant.

In other words using it as a "mist" directly on to the general public with the ability to be inhaled is NOT an exposure scenario that has been considered or evaluated.

Will make for an intersting COSHH assessment given the active is free chlorine.
