Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents).

Introduction

This document specifies production, labelling, test methods and performance requirements for the

manufacture of biological indicators including inoculated carriers and suspensions intended for use

in validation and monitoring of sterilization processes. This document gives specific requirements for

those biological indicators intended for use in moist heat sterilization processes.

Moist heat as the sterilizing agent is defined in this document as dry saturated steam. While air-steam

mixtures can be used in moist heat sterilization processes, the methods and performance requirements

of this document might not be applicable for biological indicators used in such processes.

The ISO 11138 series represents the current “state-of-the-art” according to the experts
