Document Title:Nanotechnologies — Evaluation of the antimicrobial performance of textiles containing manufactured nanomaterials

This TS specifies the antimicrobial performance assessment method of textiles containing manufactured nanomaterials (TCMNMs) (metals/metal oxides). The textiles in this document include fabric, yarn and fibre in which manufactured nanomaterials are used during production or finishing process. Further, it
also specifies protocols to determine the amount of nanomaterials released from textile following washing and/or exposure to artificial human body sweat.

This TS does not cover those textiles that have therapeutic application as well as environment, health and safety (EHS) issues related to TCMNMs. The user of this document shall refer to the relevant published documents regarding EHS issues. Further, it does not cover the release of nanomaterials from TCMNMs
as a result of aging, dry attrition and abrasion, although it is considered as an effective factor in releasing nanomaterials.
