An addendum to the European standard BS EN 455-1:2020+A1:2022 Medical gloves for single use - Requirements and testing for freedom from holes has been published (January 2023).  

The 2022 addendum has reintroduced the option to statistically sample gloves using multiple sampling plans.  The new document rectifies an anomaly that SMTL identified with the 2020 standard, where the option to statistically sample using multiple sampling plans had been inadvertently removed. 

The 2022 addendum also clarifies that testing should be performed on each lot and a definition has been provided (lot - collection of gloves of the same design, colour, shape, size and formulation, manufactured at essentially the same time, using the same process, raw materials of the same specifications, common equipment and packed in the same type of individual container)

SMTL are UKAS accredited for BS EN 455-1, 2 and 3 testing.
