ISO 11193-1:2002

Single-use medical examination gloves -- Part 1: Specification for gloves made from rubber latex or rubber solution

ISO 11193-1 specifies requirements for packaged sterile, or bulked non-sterile, rubber gloves intended for use in medical examinations and diagnostic or therapeutic procedures to protect the patient and the user from cross-contamination. It also covers rubber gloves intended for use in handling contaminated medical materials and gloves with smooth surfaces or with textured surfaces over part or all of the glove.

This standard is intended as a reference for the performance and safety of rubber examination gloves. The safe and proper usage of examination gloves and sterilization procedures with subsequent handling, packaging and storage procedures are outside the scope of this standard.
