Medical-Surgical Supplies (MSS)

In Italy, disinfectant products and substances marketed as germicide or bactericide, insecticides, rat poisons for household and civil use and insect repellents are regulated by Presidential Decree No. 392/1998 and by the Provision of February 5, 1999. Finally, these are defined as Medical-Surgical Supplies (MSS).

In detail, MSS are products or devices containing one or more disinfectants, germicides, bactericides, fungicides, insecticides, rat poisons for use against the corresponding harmful organisms. The scope of application of these products ranges from the professional sector (medicine, animal husbandry, industry, light industry, trade etc.) to the private sector (household and civil use).

This specific national legislation is being gradually replaced by the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR): as a matter of fact, pending complete review of all active principles, the member States (including Italy) continue applying any national regulations. In order to be able to market MSS, companies need to request authorisation for the specific product from the Health Ministry which assesses the soundness of the documentation submitted by applicants. Once authorised, the product label must indicate: “Medical-Surgical Supply” and the Registration number assigned by the Ministry of Health.
