ASTM WK81545

Withdrawal of E2720-16 Standard Practice for Evaluation of Effectiveness of Decontamination Procedures for Air-Permeable Materials when Challenged with Biological Aerosols Containing Human Pathogenic Viruses


This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because during the five year review of this method it was determined that industry practice has changed significantly causing it to be outdated and misaligned; requiring substantial revisions for the method to maintain its relevancy to the field. Currently, there is no technical contact available to champion these revisions.
