Top Tips for Promoting BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology
Promoting BioCote® antimicrobial technology requires a delicate balance of showcasing its benefits while ensuring strict compliance with global guidelines and regulations. Our Regulatory Chemist, Dr. Conner Hodgkiss, has provided invaluable top tips to help effectively communicate the advantages of BioCote® while upholding regulatory standards. By following these tips, you can confidently promote BioCote® and its innovative antimicrobial technology, ensuring compliance and transparency every step of the way.
Importance of Compliance
In the dynamic landscape of antimicrobial additives, compliance plays a pivotal role in building trust and credibility. Adhering to global guidelines and regulations not only demonstrates your commitment to responsible promotion but also safeguards against potential legal and reputational risks. Compliance serves as a foundation for transparent communication, enabling you to accurately convey the benefits of BioCote® without making non-compliant public health claims or creating misleading connections to human health. By prioritising compliance, you establish a solid footing for successful promotion and foster long-term relationships with customers and stakeholders alike.
Tip 1: Compliance is Key
To successfully promote BioCote® antimicrobial technology, it is crucial to prioritise compliance with rules and regulations. Whether you are targeting markets in Europe, the US, or elsewhere, it is essential to familiarise yourself with the guidelines governing claims and representations about antimicrobial properties.
Tip 2: Steer Clear of Public Health Claims
While BioCote® antimicrobial technology has demonstrated efficacy against harmful microbes such as E. coli and MRSA, it is important to avoid making non-compliant public health claims. Claims relating to viruses, infections, or phrases like “harmful bacteria” and “infection control” can be misconstrued as assertions about human health benefits. Instead, focus on the technology’s ability to inhibit microbial growth and protect the integrity of the treated product or surface.
Tip 3: Disconnect from Human Health
When discussing BioCote® antimicrobial technology, it is imperative to establish a clear separation from human health. Avoid any implication or connection to human health benefits, as this can lead to misinterpretation or confusion. Emphasise that the primary objective of BioCote® is to safeguard the product or surface from microbial contamination, thereby preserving its durability and integrity.
Tip 4: Precision in Language
Using precise language is crucial when describing the protective attributes of BioCote® antimicrobial technology. Ensure that any mention of “protection” is solely associated with preserving the product or surface from microorganisms. By framing the protection in this context, there is no room for misinterpretation that the claim relates to public health. Highlight how BioCote® shields against microbial growth and extends the lifespan of the treated item.
