This International Standard describes a laboratory test method that enables measuring the resistance of materials used in protective clothing to penetration by blood-borne pathogens using a surrogate microbe under conditions of continuous liquid contact. Protective clothing "pass/fail" determinations are based on the detection of viral penetration at a specific hydrostatic pressure.
