ISO 6360-4:2004 specifies the code numbers for specific characteristics of rotary diamond instruments and diamond-coated discs for use in dentistry. This three-digit number forms the fourth group of three digits in the 15-digit overall number, the principles of which are explained in ISO 6360-1 and ISO 6360-2.
ISO 6360-4:2004 also gives a three-digit number which in addition to the 15-digit code number may be used to provide additional information for diamond instruments and diamond-coated discs, at the discretion of the manufacturer.
NOTE In addition to terms for rotary instruments and accessories used in two of the three official ISO languages (English, French and Russian), ISO 6360-4:2004 gives the equivalent terms in the German language; these are published under the responsibility of the member body for Germany (DIN). However, only the terms given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms.
