The Standards Association of Zimbabwe has a project to draft a standard on reusable menstrual cups.


  • To draft the national standards on reusable menstrual cups.

Scope of the project

  • The standard seeks to specify the basic minimum requirements for the manufacture and performance of reusable menstrual cups.

Justification of the project: 

  • This standard will help in safeguarding women from using unapproved menstrual cups as these are made from unsafe material.
  • The standard will ensure that menstrual cups are made from high-grade silicone which is inert and harmless to the environment.It is an acceptable international best practice to link national standards developed in an open process with the technical regulatory framework.
