A biocide is defined in the European legislation as a chemical substance or
microorganism intended to destroy,deter, render harmless, or exert a
controlling effect on any harmful organism by chemical or biological means.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses a slightly different
definition for biocides as"a diverse group of poisonous substances including
preservatives, insecticides, disinfectants, and pesticides used for
the control of organisms that are harmful to human or animal health
or that cause damage to natural or manufactured products".
When compared, the two definitions roughly imply the same, although
the US EPA definition includes plant protection products and some veterinary medicines.
