BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. ("TOMI" or the "Company") (OTCQB: TOMZ), a global bacteria decontamination and infectious disease control company, announced today the appointment of Mr. Jeff Citrin as Chief Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Officer of TOMI. This position is responsible for leading the preparation of pre-market submissions and the management of regulatory compliance to the US EPA, USDA, FDA, NIOSH, OSHA, and other applicable federal, state, and international regulatory agencies in accordance with applicable regulations and guidelines. Mr. Citrin will also develop and execute regulatory strategic plans, policies, and procedures so that TOMI will meet regulatory as well as customer needs and requirements.
Mr. Citrin graduated from Vassar College with a B.A. degree and attended the University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and School of Natural Resources and Environment, from which he received his M.S. degree.

For these and other clients, Mr. Citrin managed multiple, complex multi-million dollar contracts, providing oversight and technical expertise on a wide variety of environmental projects.
Since Mr. Citrin has joined TOMI, he has discovered studies, data and testing that indicate the effectiveness of TOMI's BIT® Technology against VX nerve gas, Mustard Gas, Sarin and anthrax spores.
Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "A person with the background and past government experience that Jeff possesses will help propel the Company in reaching its goal of making TOMI's BIT® Technology the leader in the decontamination world by laying the proper matrixes to mold BIT® as the product of choice in CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear and Explosives) decontamination equipment. This is an additional industry group from which TOMI will seek new revenue and sales."
In addition, the Company announced that BIT® has been tested at the US Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC), where it was shown to effectively decontaminate chemical agents when applied using properly developed protocols. A summary of BIT® capabilities can be found in the US Department of Homeland Security's "Guide for the Selection of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Decontamination Equipment for Emergency First Responders, Guide 103-06."
