BSI has now published the amended version of BS EN 455-2, "Medical gloves for single use - Part 2: Requirements and testing for physical properties".

The new standard, BS EN 455-2:2009+A1:2011, has reduced the FAB (force at break requirement) for examination gloves from 9N to 6N, and for surgical gloves from 12N to 9N.  The National foreword also includes a statement from the UK committee, CH/205/3.
