    The high contagiousness of African swine fever (ASF) is largely due to the biological characteristics of the pathogen, namely the virulence of the DNA containing virus from the Asfarviridae family and its resistance in the external environment. Despite the safety of the ASF virus for humans, its social significance is undeniable. In and around the hotbed of infection, following the current legislation, the destruction of all pigs is carried out. At the moment, there are no etiotropic measures to combat ASF. Therefore, special attention should be paid to preventive measures, quarantine and disinfection. However, the surfaces of objects contaminated with the ASF virus are often not thoroughly decontaminated due to organic matter contaminants that protect the virus from external factors. Therefore, the choice of high quality disinfectants with a virucidal effect against the ASF pathogen is relevant
