Is it legal for my business to make and distribute hand sanitizer?

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued a temporary policy for preparation of certain alcohol-based hand sanitizer products during the public health emergency (COVID-19). This guidance is immediately in effect and outlines that the agency does not intend to take action against manufacturing firms that prepare alcohol- based hand sanitizers for consumer use and for use as health care personnel hand rubs during this ongoing public health emergency as described in the guidance. Visit the FDA website for more information.
