scope:

1.1 This test method covers procedures used to detect a shift in physical properties of natural rubber latex (NRL) condoms after immersion in a personal lubricant. "Personal lubricants" are lubricants such as liquids or gels that are applied by the consumer at the time of condom use.

1.2 This test method does not attempt to address compatibility of lubricants applied to a condom at the time of manufacture ("manufacturer lubricants"). It shall be the responsibility of the condom manufacturer to verify the long-term stability (shelf life) of any manufacturer lubricant that is packaged within the individual condom wrapper. Other regulatory requirements may apply.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
