Establishment of new ISO project committee on sex toys (ISO/PC 325)

Following approval by ISO member bodies, a new Project Committee was established: ISO/PC 325, Sex toys – Design and safety requirements for products in direct contact with genitalia, the anus, or both.

The scope of this committee is to specify safety and user information requirements relating to the materials and design for products intended for sexual use. The scope covers only products that are intended to come in direct contact with genitals and/or the anus, not including products classified as medical devices or assistive products.

Australia is an Observer (O) member of this committee. The Secretariat has been allocated to SIS (Swedish Institute for Standards).
