A guide to locating technical standards and a list of standards available in Noble Library


To support the need for personal protective equipment and medical supplies to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of organizations have made relevant standards freely available which relate to research and manufacturing efforts against COVID-19. Links to the standards can be found below, and will be updated as additional organizations contribute.

Participating Organizations

AAMI (Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation)

Includes standards for disinfection, gloves, gowns, masks, PPEs, sterilization, surgical drapes, and ventilators. Also lists and links (where available) to relevant standards from other organizations.

ANSI (American National Standards Institute)

ANSI has added a number of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards covering medical equipment and devices to a portal dedicated to COVID-19.

ASTM International

Includes standards on gloves, gowns, hand sanitizers, masks, and respirators.

EU (European Union) Standards

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
