The Machine Dishwashing Detergents (MDDv4.0i-2013) seeks to set an environmental benchmark for machine dishwashing detergents.
This standard applies to detergents (liquid and powder) and rinse aids intended for use in automatic dishwashers. There are two separate categories of product covered by this standard:
Products for use in domestic dishwashers (long-cycle products) – i.e. detergents used in machines with wash cycles longer than 15 minutes including short cycles on domestic dishwashers;
Products for use in commercial dishwashers (short-cycle products) – i.e. detergents used in machines with wash cycles less than 15 minutes.
