BS EN 14065

BS EN 14065 is the internationally recognised standard for certifying Biocontamination control systems for the laundry processing of textiles.

Laundry Processed Textiles Biocontamination Control System

Holding certification demonstrates to customers that a laundry recognises the relevant biocontamination hazards and has the necessary controls in place to reduce the likelihood or stop these hazards being present in the laundered textiles.


Medical, Healthcare and Pharmaceutical sectors are increasingly asking laundry providers to have certification for the standard, as it sets out a number of process control requirements that a laundry must implement and monitor in its’ daily operations, such as:

  • Identifying and recording the potential biocontamination hazards
  • Assessing the risk of the hazards and impact
  • Setting up a team responsible for the system and controls
  • Implementing and operating the system with requirements for documentation
  • Putting in place monitoring systems
  • Recording of results and non-conformance with systems
  • Reviewing the effectiveness of the system and periodic internal audit.

Gap Analysis

We can also offer a gap analysis as part of a pre-certification audit check, to allow your team to develop an action plan to work towards certification. This is particularly helpful if you have other ISOs in place such as 9001 for Quality or 14001 for Environmental Management.
