Association for Applied Hygiene e.V.

The VAH promotes the application-oriented scientific processing and implementation of hygienic and hygiene-relevant topics. This includes the development of test specifications and evaluation options for decontamination, disinfection, antisepsis and sterilisation procedures, the exchange of experience and interdisciplinary cooperation with relevant medical and non-medical disciplines. Last but not least, the planning and implementation of further education and training and answering user questions is an important area of responsibility.

The work of the Disinfectants Commission in the VAH is committed to the goals of public health protection. The certification of disinfectants and the publication of the VAH list are intended to ensure that only hygienically-microbiologically or hygienically-virologically tested disinfection procedures with proven effectiveness are used. The effects on humans and the environment during use, e.g. by preventing overdoses, are also taken into account.

Members of the VAH include scientific societies and professional associations as well as experts from the fields of hygiene, public health and infectiology.
