FR Recognition Number 9-145
ASTM  D7661-18
Standard Test Method for Determining Compatibility of Personal Lubricants with Natural Rubber Latex Condoms
1.1 This test method covers procedures used to detect a shift in physical properties of natural rubber latex (NRL) condoms after immersion in a personal lubricant. "Personal lubricants" are lubricants such as liquids or gels that are applied by the consumer at the time of condom use.
1.2 This test method does not attempt to address compatibility of lubricants applied to a condom at the time of manufacture ("manufacturer lubricants"). It shall be the responsibility of the condom manufacturer to verify the long-term stability (shelf life) of any manufacturer lubricant that is packaged within the individual condom wrapper. Other regulatory requirements may apply.
