Medical electrical equipment - Part 1-2: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance - Collateral Standard: Electromagnetic disturbances - Requirements and tests

IEC 60601-1-2:2014 applies to the basic safety and essential performance of Medical Equipment (ME) equipment and ME systems in the presence of electromagnetic disturbances and to electromagnetic disturbances emitted by me equipment and me systems. This collateral standard to IEC 60601-1 specifies general requirements and tests for basic safety and essential performance with regard to electromagnetic disturbances and for electromagnetic emissions of ME equipment and ME systems. They are in addition to the requirements of the general standard IEC 60601-1 and serve as the basis for particular standards. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition of IEC 60601-1-2, and constitutes a technical revision. The most significant changes with respect to the previous edition include the following modifications: - specification of immunity test levels according to the environments of intended use, categorized according to locations that are harmonized with IEC 60601-1-11: the professional healthcare facility environment, the home healthcare environment and special environments; - specification of tests and test levels to improve the safety of medical electrical equipment and medical electrical systems when portable RF communications equipment is used closer to the medical electrical equipment than was recommended based on the immunity test levels that were specified in the third edition; - specification of immunity tests and immunity test levels according to the ports of the medical electrical equipment or medical electrical system; - specification of immunity test levels based on the reasonably foreseeable maximum level of electromagnetic disturbances in the environments of intended use, resulting in some immunity test levels that are higher than in the previous edition; and - better harmonization with the risk concepts of basic safety and essential performance, including deletion of the defined term 'life-supporting'. This new edition includes the following main additions: - guidance for determination of immunity test levels for special environments; - guidance for adjustment of immunity test levels when special considerations of mitigations or intended use are applicable; - guidance on risk management for basic safety and essential performance with regard to electromagnetic disturbances; and - guidance on identification of immunity pass/fail criteria.

Appareils électromédicaux - Partie 1-2: Exigences générales pour la sécurité de base et les performances essentielles - Norme collatérale: Perturbations électromagnétiques - Exigences et essais

L'IEC 60601-1-2:2014 s'applique à la sécurité de base et aux performances essentielles des appareils Electro Médicaux (EM) et systèmes EM en présence de perturbations électromagnétiques, ainsi qu'aux perturbations électromagnétiques émises par les appareils EM et systèmes EM. La présente norme collatérale à la norme générale IEC 60601-1 a pour objet de spécifier des exigences générales et des essais applicables à la sécurité de base et aux performances essentielles eu égard aux perturbations électromagnétiques et pour les émissions électromagnétiques des appareils EM et des systèmes EM. Ils viennent en complément des exigences de la norme générale IEC 60601-1 et servent de base pour les normes particulières. Cette quatrième édition annule et remplace la troisième édition de l'IEC 60601-1-2, dont elle constitue une révision technique. Les modifications majeures par rapport à l'édition précédente sont les suivantes: - spécification des niveaux d'essai d'immunité selon les environnements d'utilisation prévue catégorisés selon les emplacements qui sont harmonisés avec l'IEC 60601-1-11: l'environnement d'un établissement de soins de santé professionnel, l'environnement de soins de santé a domicile et les environnements spéciaux; - spécification des essais et des niveaux d'essai pour améliorer la sécurité des appareils électromédicaux et des systèmes électromédicaux lorsque des appareils de communication portatifs RF sont utilisés plus près des appareils électromédicaux qu'il n'a été recommandé sur la base des niveaux d'essai d'immunité qui ont été spécifiés dans la troisième édition; - spécification des essais d'immunité et des niveaux d'essai d'immunité selon les accès des appareils électromédicaux ou des systèmes électromédicaux; - spécification des niveaux d'essai d'immunité basés sur le niveau maximum raisonnablement prévisible des perturbations électromagnétiques dans les environnements d'utilisation prévue, résultant en des niveaux d'essai d'immunité qui sont supérieurs à ceux de l'édition précédente; et - une meilleure harmonisation avec les concepts de risque de sécurité de base et des performances essentielles incluant la suppression du terme défini 'maintien de la vie'. Cette nouvelle édition inclut les ajouts majeurs suivants: - lignes directrices pour la détermination des niveaux d'essai d'immunité pour les environnements spéciaux; - lignes directrices pour l'ajustement des niveaux d'essai d'immunité lorsque des considérations spéciales d'atténuation ou d'utilisation prévue sont applicables; - lignes directrices relatives à la gestion des risques pour la sécurité de base et les performances essentielles eu égard aux perturbations électromagnétiques; et - lignes directrices relatives à l'identification des critères d'échec/réussite à l'essai d'immunité.

Coverage of Essential Requirements of EU Directives

This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European

Commission and the European Free Trade Association to provide a means of conforming to the Essential

Requirements given in Annex I of EU Directive 93/42/EEC.
General Guidance:

Once this standard will be cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of the scope of

this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding Essential Requirements (ERs) of that

Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

NOTE 1 The standard’s scope is limited to the specific uses, environments, contexts, objective

situations specifically indicated. It cannot provide for presumption of conformity in other conditions. Some

clauses or subclauses may be not applicable due to the specific type of equipment under consideration.

NOTE 2 Only prescriptions contained in the normative parts of the text are relevant to the

presumption of conformity of this standard. Informative parts may, however, support users to interpret

such prescriptions correctly.

NOTE 3 Where a reference from a clause of this standard to the risk management process

is made, the risk management process needs to be in compliance with Directive 93/42/EEC. This

means that risks have to be reduced "as far as possible", "to a minimum", "to the lowest possible

level", "minimized" or "removed", according to the wording of the corresponding essential

requirement which must be interpreted and applied in such a way as to take account of

technology and practice existing at the time of design and of technical and economical

considerations compatible with a high level of protection of health and safety.

NOTE 4 The manufacturer’s policy for determining acceptable risk must be in compliance

with essential requirements 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 of the directive.

NOTE 5 For all parts of this standard that a) refer in their clauses to specific national

legislation possibly exempting manufacturers from the thorough application of relevant provisions of this

standard or b) link the completion of a relevant process/prescription to any discretional choice/power of

manufacturers, the user of the standard should check that such clauses are in compliance with Directive

93/42/EEC.

NOTE 6 This Annex ZZ is based on Normative References according to Annex ZA, replacing the

references in the core text.

NOTE 7 According to the scope of this standard the coverage in Table ZZ.1 only applies to

protection of ME equipment and ME systems against electromagnetic disturbances. This European

Standard lists in Table ZZ.1 only the essential requirements covered.

WARNING: Other requirements and other EU Directives and Regulations may be applicable to the

product(s) falling within the scope of this standard.
