CLSI  M62 1st Edition
Performance Standards for Susceptibility Testing of Mycobacteria, Nocardia spp., and other Aerobic Actinomycetes
Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute document M62-Performance Standards for Susceptibility Testing of Mycobacteria, Nocardia spp., and Other Aerobic Actinomycetes includes the minimal inhibitory concentrations and quality control ranges developed following the standards described in CLSI document M24. The data in the tables are valid only when the methodology in CLSI document M24 is followed.
Extent of Recognition
Partial recognition. The following part(s) of the standard is (are) not recognized:
Exceptions are noted on the FDA Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test Interpretive Criteria (STIC) (https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DevelopmentApprovalProcess/DevelopmentResources/ucm575163.htm). In the absence of interpretive criteria and quality control parameters on this FDA webpage, consult the technical contacts below.
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.

This standard is recognized in part because:
Exceptions are noted on the FDA Antibacterial Susceptibility Test Interpretive Criteria webpage (https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DevelopmentApprovalProcess/DevelopmentResources/ucm575163.htm). This webpage includes a table that lists antibacterial drugs and indicates which, if any, STIC are recognized or identified by FDA for that drug.
