South Korea will require all household biocide products to secure the approval of the environment minister before they are circulated in the market to prevent a recurrence of deaths by fatal humidifier sterilizers.
The Environment Ministry said on Tuesday that the Cabinet meeting approved revisions to law on chemical products for daily use and biocide products.
Under the revisions, all biocide products such as disinfectants, pesticides, preservatives and antibacterial filters must gain safety approval from the environment minister before they hit the market.
