    Abstract

    International standards activity in anesthesia and intensive care commenced in Technical Committee 121 on Anaesthetic and Respiratory Equipment of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1966 and was initially dependent on prior work by national standards writing bodies, especially those in the United Kingdom (British Standards Institution, or BSI), United States (American National Standards Institute, or ANSI) and France (Association Française de Normalisation, or AFNOR). National work has continued, but the United States committee was transferred to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) in 1983 [1].
