ASTM WK81546

Withdrawal of E1837-96(2014) Standard Test Method to Determine Efficacy of Disinfection Processes for Reusable Medical Devices (Simulated Use Test)


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the five year review of this method it was determined that industry practice has changed significantly causing it to be outdated and misaligned; requiring substantial revisions for the method to maintain its relevancy to the field.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.
