Ayush systems: New Field of Technical Activity

A proposal to establish a new ISO Technical Committee on Ayush systems has been submitted by BIS (India). Standards Australia invites stakeholders to share their views on the proposal to help inform the Australian position (feedback is requested by 9 November 2022).
The scope of the proposed new technical committee is standardisation in the field of Ayush systems including Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa rigpa and Homoeopathy. Both traditional and modern aspects of products and services of these systems are covered.
Excluded from its scope are products and services covered by ISO/TC 54 ‘Essential oils’, ISO/TC 215 Health Informatics, and ISO/TC 249 ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine’.
