Antimicrobial Associations Of China, Japan And The ROK Jointly Launched The World Antimicrobial Industry Federation

World antibacterial Industry Federation (World Federation of Antimicrobial Industry, hereinafter referred to as: (WFAI) by zhongguancun huizhi antibacterial new materials Industry technology innovation alliance and the national health Industry enterprise management association antibacterial Industry branch (English abbreviation: CIAA), Japan antibacterial products technical agreements (English abbreviation: SIAA) and South Korea antibacterial products technical agreements (English abbreviation: KIAA) launched, on July 1, 2020 officially registered in Tokyo Japan.


According to the reporter's inquiry, as early as March 12, 2015, CIAA, SIAA and KIAA held the press conference and the Roundtable Forum on Technology Innovation and Industrial Development of Antibacterial Household Appliances in Shanghai, and released the information of China, Japan and South Korea jointly launching the preparation of the International Antibacterial Industry Organization.


According to Dr. Li Bizhong, head of the International Affairs Working Group of CIAA, the proposal to establish an international antibacterial industry organization was put forward as early as 2011. The CIAA, SIAA and KIAA began formal talks in 2014 to jointly establish an international antibacterial industry body. In the following six years, CIAA, SIAA and KIAA finally reached a consensus on the joint establishment of WFAI after more than ten rounds of talks. On July 1, 2020, WFAI completed its registration in Tokyo, Japan, thus giving birth to an international trade organization for the antimicrobial industry.


Antibacterial is an effective strategy for controlling harmful microorganisms


Harmful microbes great harm to human beings, not only causes will outbreak, SARS coronavirus, MERS, H7N1 all sorts of public health events, such as in daily life can also lead to "refrigerator syndrome" (such as listeria cause foodborne illness) and "air-condition disease" (such as legionella causing respiratory disease) etc. Various kinds of "modern disease". According to the World Health Organization, more than 33 percent of deaths worldwide each year are caused by microbial causes such as bacterial infections. Not only that, harmful microorganisms will also have harm to the objects they contact, such as metals, instruments, textiles, food and so on, resulting in the reduction of their physical and chemical properties, corruption and deterioration. In addition, harmful microorganisms can also cause animal diseases such as bird flu, chicken cholera, cattle anthrax, and plant diseases such as rice bacterial blight, wheat scab, soybean virus disease.


"Antibacterial is the process of using physical and chemical methods to kill and/or hinder the growth, reproduction and activity of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi." Professor Zhu Meifang, Director of CIAA Expert Committee, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Director of State Key Laboratory of Fibre Material Modification, Dean of School of Materials Science and Engineering, Donghua University. According to Zhu Meifang, antibacterial activity is an effective strategy to control microbial contamination. Antibacterial treatment of articles can effectively inhibit the growth and reproduction of harmful microorganisms on the surface of articles, and control the number of harmful microorganisms on the surface of articles at a relatively low level, thus significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination of harmful microorganisms.


Humans have been using antibiotics for a long time. More than 5,200 years ago, ancient Egyptians used herbal plant extracts to embalm and mummify bodies. Silver bowls, silver plates, silver chopsticks and other antibacterial silver utensils were also widely used in ancient times. During World War II, German military uniforms were treated with quaternary ammonium salt antimicrobial agents, which significantly reduced secondary infections among wounded soldiers. Since the 1960s, antibacterial began to be widely used in textile, home appliances, building materials and other fields. According to data provided by SIAA, the annual output value of Japan's antibacterial industry has exceeded 1.5 trillion yen. According to the industry research report released by CIAA, since 1998, China's antibacterial industry has developed into an emerging industry with an annual output value of about 200 billion yuan after 20 years.

The joint declaration highlights antimicrobial corporate social responsibility


On January 27, 2020, at the beginning of the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, CIAA immediately took action and issued a proposal of "Donation to Hubei Province and other key epidemic areas" to all its members, calling on them to actively fulfill their social responsibilities and contribute to the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic. Issue after initiative, CIAA numerous active participation of member units, at the same time of positive contributions, also play a professional advantage, for wuhan contributed a large number of antibacterial products and related areas, such as masks, protective clothing, gown, gowns, wet wipes, sanitary napkins, diapers, air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, water dispensers, coating, sanitary ware, household appliances, etc.

They believe that antibacterial activity is an effective strategy for controlling microbial contamination. Antibacterial treatment of articles can effectively inhibit the growth and reproduction of harmful microorganisms on the surface of articles, control the number of harmful microorganisms on the surface of articles at a relatively low level, and significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination of harmful microorganisms.



They believe that the innovative application of antimicrobial technology can effectively prevent microbial contamination during the production, storage, transportation and use of products, and contribute to the construction of public health systems and the improvement of public health standards.



They are willing to follow the concept of safe and moderate antimicrobial, innovate the application of antimicrobial technology, develop antimicrobial functional products, create a clean, sanitary and healthy living environment for consumers, and practice the national strategy of building healthy China with practical actions!
