Hospital disinfection technology, AsepticSure, to be distributed nation-wide by Wood Wyant, Canada’s largest distributor of sanitation products - See more at: http://www.medizoneint.com/investor-relations/press-releases-2013/asepticsure-distribution-agreement-opens-door-canadian-hospital-market/#sthash.1ovFHFMs.dpuf FDA / EPA
The United States Food and Drug Administration has ruled AsepticSure to be considered a Class 1 medical device. That ruling was in keeping with the expectations of our Regulatory Team. We are pleased with this FDA determination. The path forward is clear.
The final hurdle (as we see it) to acceptance of AsepticSure as a disinfection system, and thus clearance to introduce AsepticSure into the US Market, is approval by the Environmental Protection Agency. At the request of the EPA, a meeting has been scheduled for late May in Washington. The three senior leaders of our Regulatory Team including Drs Shannon and Zoutman will attend. While we cannot predict with certainty, our expectation is that regulatory approval by the EPA will be forthcoming in the weeks following that meeting.
