1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and

non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates

closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined

by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

INTRODUCTION

The use of LIGHT ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT for RADIOTHERAPY purposes may expose PATIENTS to

danger if the ME EQUIPMENT fails to deliver the required dose to the PATIENT, or if the ME

design does not satisfy standards of electrical and mechanical safety. The ME
EQUIPMENT

EQUIPMENT may also cause danger to persons in the vicinity if the ME EQUIPMENT itself fails to

contain the RADIATION adequately or if there are inadequacies in the design of the TREATMENT

ROOM.

This particular standard establishes requirements to be complied with by MANUFACTURERS in

the design and construction of LIGHT ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT for use in RADIOTHERAPY; it does

not attempt to define their optimum performance requirements. Its purpose is to identify those

features of design that are regarded, at the present time, as essential for the safe operation of

such ME EQUIPMENT; it places limits on the degradation of ME EQUIPMENT performance beyond

which it can be presumed that a fault condition exists and where an INTERLOCK then operates

to prevent continued operation of the ME EQUIPMENT.

Clause 201.10 contains limits beyond which INTERLOCKS prevent, INTERRUPT or TERMINATE

IRRADIATION in order to insure that ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE is maintained and to avoid an

unsafe condition. TYPE TESTS that are performed by the MANUFACTURER, or SITE TESTS, which

are not necessarily performed by the MANUFACTURER, are SPECIFIED for each requirement. It

should be understood that, before installation, a MANUFACTURER can provide a compliance

certificate relating only to TYPE TESTS. Data available from SITE TESTS should be incorporated

in the ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTS, in the form of a SITE TEST report, by those who test the ME

EQUIPMENT at installation.

Closely related to this standard is IEC 62667 which is currently being developed. It specifies

test methods and reporting formats for performance tests of LIGHT ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT for

use in RADIOTHERAPY, with the aim of providing uniform methods of doing so. The annex of

IEC 62667 provides forms for presenting performance values, measured per the methods

SPECIFIED.

Clause 1 of the general standard applies, except as follows:
201.1.1 Scope
Replacement:

This International Standard applies to the BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of LIGHT

ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT, used for treatment of PATIENTS.

If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to ME EQUIPMENT only, or to

ME SYSTEMS only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the

case, the clause or subclause applies both to ME EQUIPMENT and to ME SYSTEMS, as relevant.

This particular standard, with the inclusion of TYPE TESTS and SITE TESTS, applies respectively

to the manufacture and some installation aspects of LIGHT ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT

– intended for RADIOTHERAPY in human medical practice, including those in which the

selection and DISPLAY of operating parameters can be controlled automatically by
PROGRAMMABLE ELECTRONIC SUBSYSTEMS (PESS),

– that, in NORMAL USE, deliver a RADIATION BEAM of LIGHT IONS having ENERGY PER NUCLEON in

the range 10 MeV/n to 500 MeV/n,

The object of this particular standard is to establish particular BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL

PERFORMANCE requirements for LIGHT ION BEAM ME EQUIPMENT in the range 10 MeV/n to

500 MeV/n and to SPECIFY tests to check compliance to those requirements.
NOTE The adoption of this standard helps to ensure that the ME EQUIPMENT

– maintains PATIENT safety during ME EQUIPMENT movements and failure of the SUPPLY MAINS;

– delivers the pre-selected RADIATION TYPE, ENERGY PER NUCLEON, LIGHT ION species, and ABSORBED DOSE;

– delivers pre-selected LIGHT ION BEAMS to the PATIENT, by utilizing LIGHT ION BEAM modifying devices, etc.,

without causing unnecessary risk to the PATIENT, the OPERATOR, other persons or the environment.

201.1.3 Collateral standards
Addition:

Collateral standards published after the date of publication of this standard shall only apply

subject to further amendment to this standard.

This particular standard refers to those applicable collateral standards that are listed in

Clause 2 of the general standard and Clause 201.2 of this particular standard.
IEC 60601-1-6 applies as modified in Clause 206. IEC 60601-1-3, IEC 60601-1-8,
2 3

IEC 60601-1-9 and IEC 60601-1-10 do not apply. All other published collateral standards in

the IEC 60601-1 series apply as published.

NOTE Collateral standards published after the date of publication of this standard will only apply subject to further

amendment to this standard.
