SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT FOR
MEASUREMENT, CONTROL, AND LABORATORY USE –
Part 2-040: Particular requirements for STERILIZERS and
WASHER-DISINFECTORS used to treat medical materials
FOREWORD

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.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61010-2-040 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 66:

Safety of measuring, control and laboratory equipment.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2015. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) it is established on the basis of the third edition (2010) of IEC 61010‑1 and its

Amendment 1 (2016);
b) added tolerance for stability of a.c. voltage test equipment to 6.8.3.1;

– 4 – IEC 61010-2-040:2020 © IEC 2020

c) the status of a Group Safety Publication has been removed (this does not change the

technical requirements in the document).
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
CDV Report on voting
66/699/CDV 66/716/RVC

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

This document has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The reader's attention is drawn to the fact that Annex G lists all of the "in-some-country"

clauses on differing practices of a less permanent nature relating to the subject of this

standard.

A list of all parts in the IEC 61010 series, published under the general title Safety

requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use, can be

found on the IEC website.

This Part 2-040 is to be used in conjunction with IEC 61010-1. It was established on the basis

of the third edition (2010) of IEC 61010-1 and its Amendment 1 (2016), hereinafter referred to

as Part 1.

This Part 2-040 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in Part 1 so as to convert

that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for STERILIZERS and WASHER-

DISINFECTORS used to treat medical materials.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2-040, that subclause

applies as far as is reasonable. Where this Part 2-040 states "addition", "modification",

"replacement", or "deletion", the relevant requirement, test specification or note in Part 1 shall

be adapted accordingly.
In this standard:
1) the following print types are used:
– requirements: in roman type;
– NOTES: in small roman type;
– conformity and tests: in italic type;
– terms used throughout this standard which have been defined in Clause 3: SMALL
ROMAN CAPITALS.

2) subclauses, figures, and tables which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered

starting from 101; additional annexes are lettered starting from AA and additional list

items are lettered from aa).

The committee has decided that the contents of this document will remain unchanged until the

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

NOTE FROM TC/SC OFFICERS:

This CDV is intended only to align IEC 61010-2-040:2015 with IEC 61010-1:2010 and its amendment

1:2016 and provide minor editorial corrections. With this revision IEC 61010-2-040 will be in line with

the latest requirements of IEC 61010-1 + A1.

This document contains no technical changes to already accepted base documents (IEC 61010-1:2010

and its amendment 1:2016 and IEC 61010-2-040:2015) but two;

1. Clause 6.8.3.1 is modified because otherwise it would need a specific European deviation in order to

be harmonised to the LVD 2014/35/EU (ref. NAC assessment of IEC 61010-1/A1).

2. In 15.1 as an alternative method, for interlock systems containing electric/electronic or

programmable components (E/E/P components) the reliability and design requirements can be

determined by applying, for example IEC 62061 (SIL) or ISO 13849 (PL).

Further technical development is reserved for a new amendment or edition to be initiated separately as

necessary.

This alignment is realised as a new 3rd edition of IEC 61010-2-040 simply because of document

control; the previous edition 2.0 is based on the third edition of IEC 61010-1:2010 (without the

Amendment 1:2016) and amending it to incorporate the contents of IEC 61010-1 Amendment 1 would

need an unnecessary repeating of the requirements in that amendment 1 that are not particular for the

equipment in the scope of IEC 61010-2-040 . Furthermore, technically, one would need to follow 4

documents in parallel to get the full text of this part 2 (61010-1:2010, 61010-1 A1:2016, 61010-2-

040:2015, and 61010-2-040 A1).With this approach, and when the consolidated version of IEC 61010-

1:2010/A1:2016 conveniently is published, only two documents are needed.

125 FOREWORD

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

133 governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

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

135 agreement between the two organizations.

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

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

138 interested IEC National Committees.

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

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

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

142 misinterpretation by any end user.

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

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

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

146 the latter.

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

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

149 services carried out by independent certification bodies.

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

151 7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

152 members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

153 other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

154 expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

155 Publications.

156 8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

157 indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

158 9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

159 patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

160 International Standard IEC 61010-2-040 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 66:

161 Safety of measuring, control and laboratory equipment.

162 This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2015. This edition

163 constitutes a technical revision.

164 This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

165 edition:

166 a) It is established on the basis of the third edition (2010) of IEC 61010-1 and its amendment

167 1 (2016)
168 b) Adaptation of text changes introduced by Amendment 1 of IEC 61010-1:2010;

169 c) Added tolerance for stability of a.c. voltage test equipment to Clause 6.8.3.1;

170 The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
66/xxx/FDIS 66/xxx/RVD
171

172 Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

173 the report on voting indicated in the above table.

174 This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

175 A list of all parts in the IEC 61010 series, published under the general title Safety

176 requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use, can be

177 found on the IEC website.

178 This Part 2-040 is intended to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 61010-1. It

179 was established on the basis of the third edition (2010) of IEC 61010-1 and its amendment 1

180 (2016), hereinafter referred to as Part 1.

181 This Part 2-040 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in Part 1 so as to convert

182 that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for sterilizers and washer-

183 disinfectors used to treat medical materials.

184 Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2-040, that subclause

185 applies as far as is applicable. Where this Part 2-040 states “addition”, “modification”,

186 “replacement”, or “deletion”, the relevant requirement, test specification or note in Part 1 shall

187 be adapted accordingly.
188 In this standard:
189 1) the following print types are used:
190 – requirements: in roman type;
191 – NOTES: in small roman type;
192 – conformity and tests: in italic type;

193 – terms used throughout this standard which have been defined in Clause 3: SMALL

194 ROMAN CAPITALS.

195 2) subclauses, figures, and tables which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered

196 starting from 101; additional annexes are lettered starting from AA and additional list

197 items are lettered from aa).

198 The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

199 the stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

200 related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
201 • reconfirmed,
202 • withdrawn,
203 • replaced by a revised edition, or
204 • amended.
