evaluate sharpness and puncture performance of the needle tip, an important aspect of clinical

significance. In addition, the Standard specifies terms and definitions, nominal needle body diameter

and length dimension tolerance, needle body drawing strength, needle body hardness, resistance to

needle body breakage and a test method for resistance to corrosion for the needle body.

This Standard is identical with, and has been reproduced from I.S.O. 17218:2014, Sterile acupuncture

The term ?informative? has been used in this Standard to define the application of the annex to which

it applies. An ?informative? annex is only for information and guidance.
