IEC 60601-1 (Edition 3.2)


IEC 60601-1 (Edition 3.2) deals with the basic safety and essential performance requirements of medical electrical equipment and systems, and serves to ensure that in normal condition and in fault conditions, no unacceptable risks for patients and/or operators will arise, e.g. related to electrical, mechanical, thermal and functional hazards.

IEC 60601-1 (Edition 3.2) will probably become a widely accepted standard in the U.S., Canada, the EU, Japan, Brazil, Russia and Australia. To avoid being denied entry into these and other markets, manufacturers with the goal to go worldwide on the market should ensure that their products comply with both the Edition 3.1 and 3.2 of the standard.
