Proposal for a New Field of Technical Activity on Laboratory Design

A proposal to establish a new ISO Technical Committee on laboratory design has been submitted by China (SAC). ISO member bodies are invited to review and vote on the proposal. This proposal focuses on standardisation in the field of laboratory design including site selection, design of internal layout of space and services with the objective to provide functional, safe, energy efficient and sustainable laboratories, whilst also taking into account environmental impact, the practical division of experimental and support areas and layouts plus model selection of laboratory furniture.
