"HLAC encourages all professionals who serve the healthcare industry or use or process healthcare textiles to participate in the survey and make responsible comments on the proposed revisions to the standards," says Gregory Gicewicz, HLAC president. "Your feedback is important and HLAC will seriously consider all comments."

• Participants may comment on all revisions in the standards (Parts I, II or III) or, participants may choose to comment only on those revisions where their opinions, views or ideas are strongest.
