    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The history, scope, structural components, generation, and purpose of international dental standards are concisely surveyed by three researchers active in standards development. Significance: Standards have an important role to play within dental materials research alongside more specialist scientific instruments and methods. For all that are concerned with the wider business and safety issues of manufacture, marketing, selection and use of dental biomaterials and devices, knowledge of the vital role of standards is indispensable. © 2011 Academy of Dental Materials.
