CHT Germany GmbH has started the production of a hand disinfectant with today's effect. The reason for this step is the shortage of hand disinfectant on the market due to the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 currently circulating.
After the application on 07.03.2020 CHT Germany GmbH has now received the approval for the production of the hand disinfectant. This is based on an extended general decree which was announced by the Federal Agency for Chemicals (BAuA) in agreement with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Thus CHT Germany GmbH as a producing company of the speciality chemicals industry belongs to the individualised group of addressees of "pharmacies, companies of the pharmaceutical industry and companies of the chemical industry" to whom the extended general ruling of the BAuA is directed.
The CHT hand disinfectant is produced on the basis of a publicly accessible standard formulation of the WHO. Due to the high demand CHT hand disinfectant is produced in 3-shift operation at the Dußlingen site.
Currently, requests from regional organisations such as the DRK, clinics and old people's homes are given priority. Subsequently, CHT wants to meet all further inquiries and start active sales to commercial customers such as wholesalers for pharmacy or drugstore supply. The distribution of the CHT disinfectant, which is available in 1 and 5 liter containers, is thus exclusively directed at commercial customers and not at the end consumer.
We are pleased and proud to be able to make a positive contribution in the currently very difficult situation and to support the increased demand of the population for hand disinfectants.
