On February 1st, Regulation (EU) 2019/1148 will enter into force indicating the rules for the regulation of explosives precursors. The regulation governs new rules with respect to certain chemicals and mixtures, with heavy implications regarding the use, purchase, possession and sale, both for private and professional users. The updates will involve, among other substances, also sulfuric acid, the fundamental component of the descaling detergent of Ambro-Sol® - code P306. From 01/02/2021, the private user will no longer be able to freely purchase products with a concentration of sulfuric acid greater than 15%. Therefore the Ambro-Sol® descaling detergent will become exclusively for professional use. Consequently, the product will no longer be considered an "over the counter product". The purchase can only be made by the professional user, followed by an official document (e.g. invoice) that allows tracking. For more details click here.
In the face of executive measures and the consequent increase in disinfectants, Ambro-Sol has obtained an extension of the authorization from the Ministry of Health regarding the possibility of producing biocidal products belonging to the PT2 category. The Ministry of Health has therefore promulgated an extension to authorizations notwithstanding the article 55 of the Biocides Regulation 528/2012. The latter regulates the placing on the market of biocides in order to ensure the protection of man and the environment. All biocidal products can in fact be placed on the market only after obtaining a specific authorization. In exceptional situations, such as in the case of danger to public health, the State may authorize the placing on the market of disinfectant biocidal products (categories PT1, PT2, PT4) on an extraordinary basis. The authorization issued by the Ministry of Health ensures that the products have been subjected to an accurate assessment aimed at certifying their quality and safety. Ambro-Sol therefore reconfirms the availability of the product at its production plants. Discover our sanitizing and disinfectant sprays: click here

What is ISO 9001: 2015 certification? ISO 9001: 2015 is the international standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS) published by ISO (International Organization for Standardization). The standard was updated in 2015 and for this reason it is called ISO 9001: 2015. Being an international certification it had to receive approval from the majority of member states in order to become an internationally recognized standard and therefore accepted in most countries. ISO 9001: 2015 is a standard for the creation, implementation and management of a Quality Management System. It is therefore a set of rules that define the way, the creation, the supply of the product / service to the customer. Ambro-Sol adopts it as a basis for creating a system that ensures customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. The ISO 9001: 2015 certification for Ambro-Sol In 2017 Ambro-Sol achieved ISO 9001: 2015 certification to guarantee quality processes and satisfy the needs of its customers.

The Covid-19 emergency taught that prevention also passes through the disinfection and sanitization of the surfaces of the environments in which we live. Ambro-Sol has converted part of its factory to the production of an aerosol disinfectant for surfaces, to face this sanitary emergency. The production was authorized directly by the Ministry of Health. The disinfectant line is based on isopropyl alcohol, an active substance with a disinfectant, sanitizing, virucidal and bactericidal action recognized by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). The rapid evaporation, the immediate effect, the absence of dyes and perfumes ensures effective, fast and residue-free cleaning of any treated surface, such as plastic, rubber, glass, metal and ceramic. The formulation makes the product also suitable for disinfecting the surfaces of smartphones, tablets, keyboards, mice, monitors, printers and all the electronic devices used daily. Thanks to its versatility, the Ambro-Sol disinfectant is a product that can be used in many environments, both domestic and work, for the sanitization of all those surfaces that are frequently touched with the hands.
As per the Ministry of Health's disposition: All products that have a disinfection action on the label can be classified as biocidal products - and are only placed on the market after obtaining a specific marketing authorization from the Ministry of Health or the European Commission. Even the products that indicate the term "sanitizing / sanitizing" are considered to fall within the definition of biocidal products and therefore are subject to the relative authorization regime. The sanitation products sold in Italy must have the following label on the label: "sterilization products authorized by the Ministry of Health or authorized by the European Union. /../ .. AUT (in accordance with EU Regulation no. 528/2012 ) "or:" Registration of the internal medicine operating room of the Ministry of Health ... " The registration number or authorization number issued by the Ministry of Health or the European Commission ensures that the biocidal product is checked before it is placed on the market to assess its safety for consumers and the environment and its effectiveness according to the instructions and the authorized conditions of use.
We'll make it! Ambro-Sol offers its contribution to the management of the emergency linked to the epidemiological spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by donating 3,000 units of Alcohol Spray to the families of the municipalities of Cigole, San Gervasio and Pavone del Mella. Aware of the importance that everyone does their part in this time of difficulty, Ambro-Sol has converted normal production and in recent days has created a range of disinfectants in its factories approved, according to the Biocides Regulation, by the Ministry of Health. The free article is a product based on Isopropyl Alcohol (2-Propanol) in a concentration of 90%. With this gesture Ambro-Sol wants to offer its support to deal with the lack of sanitation material.

In Italy, companies currently report the compositions of dangerous preparations to the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), which makes data available to Poison Control Centers. Starting from 1 January 2021, however, the information must be transmitted in a new format, established by Annex VIII of the CLP and specified by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). Among the various information that will be required to notify, the introduction of a new identification code stands out: the UFI. What is the UFI code? It is a 16-digit alphanumeric code which will uniquely identify the blends and which will be placed on the label, next to the other information, preceded by the word "UFI" and divided into four blocks, each separated by a dash. Eg UFI: H563-L90S-R786-J823. A UFI code will identify a formulation and, if the formula is common, it can be shared among multiple products. A mixture may be associated with multiple UFI codes (different names attributed to the same mixture or different target markets). How is UFI generated? By entering the company's VAT number and a specific formulation number for the mixture in ECHA's UFI online generator, the code will be provided. When to replace the UFI? The UFI code will have to be replaced if: - inserted a new substance in the composition: if dangerous in any entity, while if not dangerous above 1%; - eliminated from the composition any substance with the above limits; - the quantity of a substance already present has changed with respect to the range of presence in the formula declared in the previous notification. How to send the notification? The online tool guided on the central portal of ECHA and dedicated software will allow you to prepare and validate the notification dossier. Here are the data required for the notification: • identification of the company; • commercial name of the product; • classification and elements of product labeling; • physical state, color, pH; • toxicological information (Section 11); • composition of the product; • substances; • mixtures in mixture (MIM); • packaging used; • UFI code (s) of the mixture. Which products to notify? Mixtures placed on the market which are classified as dangerous because of their effects on human health or their chemical / physical effects must be notified. Products excluded from the notification obligation: to. substances (including UVCB substances); b. mixtures classified as dangerous only for the effects on the environment or not classified as dangerous; c. explosive mixtures and gases under pressure; d. medicines for humans and veterinarians, radioactive mixtures, food and feed, ready-to-use cosmetic products. When to notify them? The mixtures must be notified before being placed on the market and no longer within 30 days from the date of first placing on the market.
