    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method determines the antibacterial activity and persistence of test formulations, as measured by the inhibition of a test organism on an agar surface exposed to test sites on human skin treated with the formulations.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E35 on Pesticides, Antimicrobials, and Alternative Control Agents, this test method was withdrawn in January 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method determines the antibacterial activity and persistence of test formulations, as measured by the inhibition of a test organism on an agar surface exposed to test sites on human skin treated with the formulations.

    1.2 A knowledge of microbiological techniques is required for these procedures.

    1.3 It is the responsibility of the investigator to determine if Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) are required and to adhere to these practices, as appropriate.

    1.4 In this test method, SI units are used for all applications except linear measure. In that case, inches are used and SI units follow in parentheses.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Performance of this procedure requires the knowledge of regulations pertaining to the protection of human subjects (see 21 CFR, Ch. I, Parts 50 and 56 ).
