Revision of E1173-15 Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Preoperative, Precatheterization, or Preinjection Skin Preparations


The Method (now Practice) requires procedural revision in order to provide data consistent with current FDA requirements for registration of preoperative or preinjection preparations. Further, the title will be changed from "Standard Method" to "Standard Practice," because recruitment of enough labs willing to perform for free the extraordinarily expensive testing necessary to providing data for determining "Precision and Bias" would be difficult to impossible.
