Twenty pages of new and updated content will touch on SUS sterilization, storage and expiry, integrity, design conformance, and single-use equipment. We will also plot the course for anticipated revisions in 2026 around topics such as: SUS joining, risk management, particulate control, and alignment of terminology.
