Pharmaceutical preparation machinery - ISO new field of technical activity

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on a proposal for a new field of technical activity on Pharmaceutical preparation machinery. SAC (China) has proposed this activity. 

The scope of the proposal is the following: 

Standardization of pharmaceutical preparation machinery, including terminology, classification, requirements, and test methods. 

The subject of the committee is to develop international standards for preparation machinery, so as to meet the need of international trade of preparation machinery manufacturers in various countries. It focuses on the terms and definitions of preparation machinery, classification, requirements (including material requirements, cleaning and disinfection requirements, safety requirements, and quality requirements) and test methods. 

Standards New Zealand is consulting with stakeholders in this area to determine New Zealand's response. There is more information on our International Engagement page

To submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email isoadmin@standards.govt.nz.  Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal. Please provide your comments by Friday, 15 July 2016.
