The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published an international standard for textiles.

The standard is named as ISO 12947-2:2016 Textiles -- Determination of the abrasion resistance of fabrics by the Martindale method -- Part 2: Determination of specimen breakdown.

This standard provides the procedure for the determination of specimen breakdown (end-point of test) by inspection at fixed intervals and is applicable to all textile fabrics including nonwovens apart from fabrics where the specifier indicates the end performance as having a low abrasion wear life.

The standard was published on November 17, 2016.
