California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) Registers Patented Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) as Hospital Disinfectant
Opens Door to Significant Opportunity for SteraMist™ Platform in Key Market
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI™ Environmental Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:TOMZ) (TOMI), a global bacteria decontamination and infection prevention company, announced it received registration for its patented Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) as a hospital healthcare disinfectant from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR).
Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI's Chief Executive Officer, stated: "The CDPR registration is important for TOMI as it opens access to a significant market in California. According to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), indoor air pollution causes significant health effects that cost at least $45 billion each year in California alone, and we believe TOMI is well positioned to address many of these issues with our SteraMist™ platform."
"In fact, over the years as we further developed SteraMist™ and sought EPA registration for its sale within the U.S., we generated a great deal of interest among hospitals within the state. Now we are looking forward to aggressively pursuing those and additional sales opportunities. In addition, we are pleased to have our Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claims supported by the CDPR as the California agency is widely known as having one of the most stringent regulatory review processes in the country. We believe SteraMist™ is the first ever the two-stage product registered by the EPA, and now with the California registration in hand, all Californians can benefit from this cutting-edge disinfectant product. TOMI's registration enables the use of SteraMist in healthcare applications as well as general applications where a dependable, rapid disinfection of objects and surfaces is needed," concluded Dr. Shane.
Following the registration of BIT from the EPA on June 24, 2015, the CDPR began a 30 day review of the claims and other data originally submitted to the EPA. Following the review process, the CDPR registered TOMI's BIT, which powers its SteraMist™ brand line of products, as a hospital healthcare disinfectant and general disinfectant within the state of California.
