Medical electrical equipment-requirements for basic safety and essential performance


Free documents/Article/ebooks/sops/checklist for Attendee:

The medical device/equipment field is one of the most heavily regulated industries, for obvious reasons.  Medical equipment are an important tool in efforts to improve patient care and treatment outcomes. However, today’s advanced medical devices usually consist of unique combinations of mechanical, electrical and electronic components and technologies that are frequently controlled by software or programmable controllers. As a result, international regulations and standards applicable to medical devices are being continuously revised and updated to reflect potential safety issues that can result from increasingly complex device designs.
First published in 1977 by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), IEC 60601-1, Medical electrical equipment – Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, is the internationally recognized standard addressing general requirements for medical electrical equipment and devices. IEC 60601-1 has undergone a number of significant revisions over the years in an effort to remain current with new and advanced medical technologies. The latest set of changes was introduced with the 2012 publication of Amendment 1 to IEC 60601-1.
This webinar provides an overview of the IEC 60601. It also covers the modified requirements presented in IEC 60601-1 Edition 3.1. Beginning with a brief summary of the history of the standard, the webinar then offers a review of the significant additions and changes presented in Amendment 1, as well as information on other changes that may affect medical device manufacturers.
