The proposed Technical Report is to provide a common understanding of post-market surveillance, or
PMS facilitating international cooperation in this area. The Technical Report is intended for use by
manufacturers of medical devices. With PMS, the manufacturers can collect, evaluate, and analyze experience gained with their devices after placing on the market. The resulting information can be used for, among others, improvement of the devices.
The proposed Technical Report aims to describe a comprehensive data collection process and activities that allow characterization of the behavior of the devices as used in practice, and identify necessary and/or possible actions. PMS information may include material that requires reporting to Regulatory Authorities. The proposed Technical Report will not provide information for such reporting, nor for achieving compliance with any other (PMS) requirement by Regulatory Authorities.
Market surveillance by national authorities, as well as actions legally required to be performed by manufacturers as part of PMS or vigilance are outside the scope of the proposed Technical Report. The document is not intended to replace or change national or regional legislation on PMS.

This document is one of a series of standards describing the characteristics for identification cards as defined in the definitions clause and the use of such cards for international interchange.
This document specifies requirements for a high coercivity magnetic stripe (including any protective overlay) on an identification card and encoding technique. It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements.
Coercivity influences many of the quantities specified in this document but is not itself specified. The main characteristic of the high coercivity magnetic stripe is its improved resistance to erasure. This is achieved with minimal probability of damage to other magnetic stripes by contact while retaining read compatibility with magnetic stripes as defined in ISO/IEC 7811-2.
This document provides for a card capacity of approximately 10 times that of a card conforming to ISO/IEC 7811-6. The number of tracks has been increased to 6, each track being approximately half the width of tracks conforming to ISO/IEC 7811-6, located so that readers designed to read these high density tracks will also be able to read cards conforming to ISO/IEC 7811-2 and ISO/IEC 7811-6. Data is encoded in 8 bit bytes using the MFM encoding technique. Data framing is used to limit error propagation and error correction techniques further improve reliability of reading.
It is the purpose of the ISO/IEC 7811 series of standards to provide criteria to which cards shall perform. No consideration is given within these standards to the amount of use, if any, experienced by the card prior to test. Failure to conform to specified criteria is negotiated between the involved parties.
ISO/IEC 10373-2 specifies the test procedures used to check cards against the parameters specified in this document.
NOTE Numeric values in the SI and/or Imperial measurement system in this document may have been rounded off and are consistent with, but not exactly equal to each other. Using either system is correct but intermixing or reconverting values can result in errors. The original design was made using the Imperial measurement system.

This document specifies requirements for the characterization of a liquid chemical sterilizing agent and for the development, validation, process control and monitoring of sterilization by liquid chemical sterilizing agents of single-use medical devices comprising, in whole or in part, materials of animal origin.
This document covers the control of risks arising from contamination with bacteria and fungi by application of a liquid chemical sterilization process. Risks associated with other microorganisms can be assessed using other methods (see NOTE 1).
This document is not applicable to material of human origin.
This document does not describe methods for the validation of the inactivation of viruses and transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) agents (see NOTE 2 and NOTE 3).
This document does not describe methods for validation of the inactivation or elimination of protozoa and parasites.
The requirements for validation and routine control described in this document are only applicable to the defined sterilization process of a medical device, which is performed after the manufacturing process, and do not take account of the lethal effects of other bioburden reduction steps (see NOTE 4).
This document does not specify tests to establish the effects of any chosen sterilization process upon the fitness for use of the medical device (see NOTE 5).
This document does not cover the level of residual sterilizing agent within medical devices (see NOTE 6).
Guidance for the characterization of a liquid chemical sterilizing agent and for the development, validation, process control and monitoring of sterilization by liquid chemical sterilizing agents of single-use medical devices comprising, in whole or in part, materials of animal origin is provided in informative Annex A.
NOTE 1 The prior application of risk management principles to medical devices utilizing animal tissues, as described in ISO 22442-1 is important. ISO 18362 provides information on control of microbial risks during processing of cell-based health-care products.
NOTE 2 Liquid chemical sterilizing agents traditionally employed to sterilize animal tissues in medical devices might not be effective in inactivating the causative agents of TSE such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or scrapie. Satisfactory validation in accordance with this document does not necessarily demonstrate inactivation of infective agents of this type. Risk controls related to sourcing, collection and handling of animal materials are described in ISO 22442-2.
NOTE 3 The validation of the inactivation, elimination, or elimination and inactivation of viruses and TSE agents is described in ISO 22442-3.
NOTE 4 Manufacturing processes for medical devices containing animal tissues frequently include exposure to chemical agents which can significantly reduce the bioburden on the medical device. Following the manufacturing process, a medical device is exposed to a specified sterilization process.
NOTE 5 Such testing is a crucial part of the design and development of a medical device.
NOTE 6 ISO 10993-17 specifies a method to establish allowable limits for residues of sterilizing agents.
NOTE 7 Standards for quality management systems (see ISO 13485) can be used in the control of all stages of manufacture including the sterilization process.

This document specifies technical requirements and documentation necessary to establish metrological traceability of values assigned to calibrators, trueness control materials and human samples for quantities measured by IVD MDs. The human samples are those intended to be measured, as specified for each IVD MD. Metrological traceability of values for quantities in human samples extends to the highest available reference system component, ideally to RMPs and certified reference materials (CRMs).
All parties having a role in any of the steps described in a calibration hierarchy for an IVD MD are subject to the requirements described. These parties include but are not limited to manufacturers (of IVD MDs), RMP developers (see ISO 15193), RM producers (see ISO 15194), and reference/calibration laboratories (see ISO 15195) supporting calibration hierarchies for IVD MDs.
NOTE 1 Producers of RMs intended for use in standardization or calibration of IVD MDs include commercial and non-commercial organizations producing RMs for use by many end-users of IVD MDs and/or calibration laboratories, or for use by a single end-user medical laboratory, as in the case of a measurement standard (calibrator) intended to be used exclusively for calibration of a laboratory-developed MP.
This document is applicable to:
a) all IVD MDs that provide measurement results in the form of numeric values, i.e. rational (ratio) and/or differential (interval) scales, and counting scales.
b) IVD MDs where the measurement result is reported as a qualitative value established with a ratio of two measurements (i.e. the signal from a specimen being tested and the signal from a RM with a specified concentration or activity at the cut-off), or a counting scale, with corresponding decision threshold(s). This also includes IVD MDs where results are categorized among ordinal categories based on pre-established quantitative intervals for a quantity.
c) RMs intended for use as trueness control materials for verification or assessment of calibration of IVD MDs, i.e. some commutable CRMs and some external quality assessment (EQA) materials (if so indicated in the RM's intended use statement).
d) IVD MD-specific calibrators and trueness control materials with assigned values, intended to be used together with a specified IVD MD.
e) IVD MDs as described in a) and b), where no end-user performed calibration is required (i.e. when the manufacturer performs a factory calibration of the IVD MD).
This document is not applicable to:
a) calibrators and trueness control materials for IVD MDs which, due to their formulation, are known to have zero amount of measurand;
b) control materials that are used only for internal quality control purposes in medical laboratories to assess the imprecision of an IVD MD, either its repeatability or reproducibility, and/or for assessing changes in IVD MD results compared to a previously established calibration condition;
c) control materials that are used only for internal quality control purposes in medical laboratories and which are supplied with intervals of suggested acceptable values that are not metrologically traceable to higher order reference system components;
d) properties reported as nominal scales and ordinal scales, where no magnitude is involved.
NOTE 2 Nominal scales are typically used to report e.g. identity of blood cell types, microorganism types, identity of nucleic acid sequences, identity of urine particles.

This document applies to the basic safety and essential performance of ventilatory high-flow therapy equipment, as defined in 201.3.204, hereafter also referred to as ME equipment, in combination with its accessories:
- intended for use in the home healthcare environment;
- intended for use in professional healthcare facilities;
- intended for use by a lay operator or a healthcare professional operator;
- intended for use with patients who can breathe spontaneously;
- intended for patients who would benefit from improved alveolar gas exchange; and who would benefit from receiving high-flow humidified respiratory gases, including a patient whose upper airway is bypassed; and
EXAMPLE 1 Patients with Type 1 Respiratory Failure, which exhibits a reduction in arterial blood oxygenation or patients who would benefit from reduced work of breathing, as needed in Type 2 Respiratory Failure, where arterial carbon dioxide is high.
- not intended for patients who are dependent on artificial ventilation for their life support.
NOTE 1 In the home healthcare environment, the supply mains is often not reliable.
Ventilatory high-flow therapy equipment is typically composed of four parts:
1) gas sources,
- air, and
- if needed, oxygen;
NOTE 2 Gas sources include medical gas pipeline systems, gas cylinders, oxygen concentrators and ambient air.
2) humidifier;
NOTE 3 When dry gas is utilized, a humidifier is typically needed.
3) breathing tube;
4) a patient interface, which is used to deliver gas to the patient; and
5) a flow controller, which is used to select and deliver the desired flow.
NOTE 4 The flow controller can be at a fixed rate.
NOTE 5 The flowrate range is dependent upon the intended patient population (e.g., neonatal, paediatric and adult patients can require different flowrates).
These parts can be combined (e.g., the gas source and humidifier can be combined). Ventilatory highflow therapy equipment interfaces with the patient whose upper airway is intact via a nasal cannula or mask as well as a patient whose upper airway is bypassed via an endotracheal tube, oropharyngeal mask, or tracheostomy.
Ventilatory high-flow therapy equipment can be transit-operable.
This document is also applicable to those accessories intended by their manufacturer to be connected to the ventilatory high-flow therapy equipment, where the characteristics of those accessories can affect the basic safety or essential performance of the ventilatory high-flow therapy equipment.
