Brazil has new regulations governing the sterilisation of dental implants by radiation. ABNT NBR 15729:2009, introduced by the national technical standards body (ABNT), covers procedures, certification and routine controls; it specifies the methods that require the lowest doses of irradiation needed to ensure sterilisation, as well as procedures for gauging the dosage. It came into effect on August 2.
