The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), published revised EN ISO 11290-1 and EN ISO 11290-2 standards in 2017. In Part 1, a horizontal method for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria spp. is specified, and in Part 2, the enumeration of these organisms in food, animal feed and environmental samples is described. The revised Part 1 edition cancels and replaces the first edition EN ISO 11290-1:1996 and incorporates the amendment 1 from 2004. Part 2 cancels and replaces the first edition of EN ISO 11290-2:1998 and incorporates the amendment 1 from 2004. Compared to the previous edition, the main changes are considered as major. In the revised EN ISO 11290:2017, the scope in both Parts 1 and 2 has been extended to enable also the detection and enumeration of Listeria spp.
