Biocide Usage and Antimicrobial Resistance in Home Settings: an Update (2004)

In making their consensus statement regarding concerns about biocide use in relation to antimicrobial resistance in 2000, the IFH board agreed that this aspect requires constant review. In this paper their conclusions are re-evaluated in light of new data that had become available since the first publication in 2000.

This document is an update on the IFH review entitled “Microbial resistance and biocides” which was published in 2000. The document was prepared by Professor SF Bloomfield. It was then submitted to the other members of the IFH Scientific Advisory Board comprising Dr R Beumer, Professor M Exner, Professor G Fara and Dr EA Scott to review, develop and agree on final content.
