Why are some products listed here but not on other disinfectants lists compiled by other organizations?

List N only includes the primary EPA-registered product. Other lists of products that kill SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) that are not maintained by EPA may include alternate brand names and supplemental distributor products. As discussed in the "I can’t tell if the product I’m interested in is on the list or not. Can you help me?" FAQ, you should rely on the EPA registration number to identify products on List N.
