Your IEC 60601-1 compliance for global market access
The testing and certification process of fulfilling the current IEC 60601-1 standard is a complex and multifaceted task. IEC 60601-1 mandates collateral, particular and performance standards specific to the device type, all of which are required for relevant certification schemes.
Documentation of ISO 14971 compliant risk management practices must be clear throughout the product lifecycle and device labeling. In conjunction with technical documentation and device sample, your medical electrical equipment and systems are tested according to established electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) as well as, electrical and environmental safety standards.
Your intended destination markets determine whether you will require a IEC 60601-1 certificate, a comprehensive evaluation report or both.
Our experts actively participate in standardization committees to gain unique technical expertise and actively stay informed of the latest changes to compliance requirements. Speak to an expert to determine if your device is eligible for testing or requires full IEC 60601-1 certification.
