Of concern is the CEN/TR 16953: 2017 "Guidance for Selection of Single Use Medical Gloves" that needs an update in aligning to PPER and MDR, hence it was proposed to start a possible revision of this CEN/TR, after finishing the Enquiry manuscript for prEN 455-5. 8. New work , revision or amendment proposals There is no new work item proposal being proposed. 9. Any other business Malaysia requested for USA to update the meeting with ASTM ongoing works on the sustainability and the biodegradability of gloves. According to Ms. Margaret ASTM is now creating a small group dedicated to the biodegradability of gloves. Ms Margaret will update the meeting next year once the working group is formed and its scope defined at ASTM. Dr Supramaniam of Malaysia also informed that Malaysia is currently working on the method of detecting biodegradability of gloves. 10. Requirements for the next meeting The WG decided to meet on the same day and time next year. ANNEX C 11. Approval of the draft recommendation for SC 4 As listed in Annex B 12. Closing of the meeting The meeting was closed at 12.15 p.m with a vote of thanks to all delegates for their active participation and contribution in the deliberation of WG 5 projects.

Review and discussion of draft standards 6.1 ISO/CD 22762-5, Elastomeric seismic-protection isolators -- Part 5: Elastic Sliding SeismicProtection Isolator for Buildings A The results of the CD ballot for Part 5 and the responses of the Secretariat to the comments on the draft were presented. The major responses and additional comments were discussed by the WG as follows: a) ID1: Reference values of hardness and 100% modulus are not specified in Table 6 as they depend on rubber used. Only tolerance is specified. For hardness, tolerance is ±x hardness units; hardness scale eg IRHD should be given. Part 3 specifies IRHD in clause 6.6.4. b) ID2: Insert units for density. c) Additional comment GB2 accepted. d) JP2: Lower values for the minimum elongation at break (Table 6) were accepted. e) In Table 6 it was agreed i) to delete ‘to reference value’ in col. 3 ii) to delete ‘or more’ and use symbol >= in col 5. f) JP3: Modified Table 7 was accepted. In col 5 row 4, the value should be changed to 26. HDD and HRR to be explained g) JP4 and JP5 were not accepted. It was agreed that CD22762 part 5 could be recommended to proceed to DIS stage. The revised draft to be submitted to SC4 Committee Manager by 29/2/2020. B Test results of sliding seismic-protection isolators. Presentation by Takeshi Sawada. Tests were carried out at NCREE, Taiwan on a biaxial dynamic testing system called BATS. Full-scale sliding isolators were tested. The results reported included: a) repeated shear loading test. After 65 cycles: - no change in shear characteristics. - temperature rise for backing-plate was 23°C Results showed that small-scale tests permitted in CD22762-5 were realistic. b) compressive force dependence of µ. Results showed that increase of compressive force lowered µ. c) effect of sliding velocity on µ. Velocity 10mm/s gave µ = 0.0061. Velocity 800mm/s gave µ = 0.0124. 6.2 ISO/NP 22762-6, Elastomeric seismic-protection isolators -- Part 6: High-durability and highperformance specifications, and test methods A The results of the NP ballot for Part 6 and the responses of the Secretariat to the comments on the draft were presented. The major responses and additional comments were discussed by the WG as follows: a) It was agreed that the Introduction and Scope sections needed revising. Keith Fuller agreed to do this. b) Comments GB 2 and 3 were accepted. c) Comment GB 4. Figure of 6% was agreed as maximum damping for isolator to be classified as low damping. d) Comments JP7/GB8 and GB9 accepted. e) GB10: In Table 4 (and Tables 5 and 6), agreed to replace ‘change rate of’ with ‘percentage change with respect to’. Replace ‘Dependency of compressive properties‘ by ‘Dependency of compressive stiffness’. ANNEX F Replace ‘Dependency of shear properties‘ by ‘Dependency of shear stiffness’. In row ‘Dependency of compressive properties‘, ‘Change rate of value at 30% amplitude of design compressive strain.’ needs clarification. f) GB11: Footnotes f in Table 4 and g in Tables 5 and 6 need revising.

Other similar instances in Tables 4, 5 and 6 to be changed. Additional comment – in Table 4 row ‘compressive creep’, ‘6% or less’ to be replaced by ‘<= 6%’. Other similar instances in Tables 4, 5 and 6 to be changed. h) In Table 4 shear displacement capacity row, replace ‘test no required’ by ‘test not required’. In Table 5 row “Ultimate properties under horizontal biaxial loading’, needs to clarify what 70% refer to. I) Comments JP13 to GB22 were accepted. j) Comment GB23 accepted. Phase difference of 90 degrees between major and minor axes to be specified in text. k) Comment JP24 to GB26 accepted. l) Comment GB27.
