EN 14065 standard describes the principles of developing a management system ensuring the microbiological quality of textiles after treatment in a laundry. The system established in accordance with this standard complies with the process approach known from ISO 9001, except for the requirements of point 7.3. The standard EN 14065 was established by CEN (European Committee for Standardization) on November 20, 2002, introduced into the Polish Norms collection in the original version in 2003, while the Polish version of the standard was introduced by the Polish Standardization Committee in April 2005.
