This Indian Standard (Part 1) (First Revision) which is identical with ISO 11193-1 : 2008 ‘Single-use medical examination gloves — Part 1: Specification for gloves made from rubber latex or rubber solution’ issued by the International Organization for Standardization was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on recommendation of the Hospital Equipment and Surgical Disposable Products, Sectional Committee and approval of the Medical Equipment and Hospital Planning Division Council.

This standard was first published in 2003 which was identical with ISO 11193 : 1994 ‘Single-use rubber examination gloves Specification’. Subsequently on revision of ISO 11193 : 1994 into two parts, the committee also decided to revise IS 15354 : 2003 in two parts The first revision of this standard has been undertaken to align it with the latest version of ISO 11193-1 : 2008

This Indian Standard is published in two parts. The other part in this series is:

Part 2 Specification for gloves made from poly (vinyl chloride)

Amendment 1 published in 2012 issued to ISO 11193-1 : 2008 has been given at the end of the publication.

The text of ISO standard has been approved as suitable for publication as an Indian Standard without deviations. Certain terminologies and conventions are, however, not identical to those used in the Indian Standards. Attention is particularly drawn to the following:

a) Wherever the words ‘International Standard’ appear referring to this standard, they should be read as ‘Indian Standard’.

b) Comma (,) has been used as a decimal marker, while in Indian Standards, the current practice is to use a point (.) as the decimal marker.
