This document specifies requirements and test methods for Needle-Based Injection Systems (NISs) for single-patient use intended to deliver discrete volumes (bolus) of medicinal product, which can be delivered through needles or soft cannulas for intradermal, subcutaneous and/or intramuscular delivery, incorporating pre-filled or user-filled, replaceable or non-replaceable containers.
This document applies in cases where the NIS incorporates a prefilled syringe. However, stand-alone prefilled syringes defined by ISO 11040-8 are not covered by this document (see exclusions below).
It is important to note that other functions and characteristics of the prefilled syringe, such as dose accuracy, are subject to the requirements (delivered volume) in ISO 11040-8 and not this document, unless the addition impacts the delivery function (e.g. a mechanism that intends to restrict or stop the plunger movement, which would limit the dose delivered). In that case, the system is completely covered by this document and applicable requirements of the ISO 11608 series.
Excluded from the scope are:
—    stand-alone prefilled syringes defined by ISO 11040-8 (with noted exceptions above);
—    NISs that provide continuous delivery and require a delivery rate clinically specified in the medicinal product labelling or determined by a physician based on clinical relevance (i.e. medication efficacy) as would be the case with insulin patch pumps or traditional infusion pumps (e.g. IEC 60601-2-24, ISO 28620) associated with continuous delivery of medicinal products (e.g. insulin);
—    NISs with containers that can be refilled multiple times;
—    requirements relating to methods or equipment associated with user filling of containers unless they are dedicated accessories (a component necessary for primary function, whether included in the original kitted product or not);
—    NISs intended for dental use;
—    NISs intended for different routes of administration (e.g. intravenous, intrathecal, intraocular).

EN 13795-1 does not cover requirements for resistance to penetration by laser radiation of products. Suitable test methods for resistance to penetration by laser radiation, together with an appropriate classification system, are given in EN ISO 11810.
EN 13795-1 does not cover requirements for incise drapes or films.
EN 13795-1 does not cover requirements for antimicrobial treatments for surgical gowns and drapes. Antimicrobial treatment may cause environmental risks such as resistance and pollution. However, antimicrobial treated surgical gowns and drapes fall under the scope of this standard with respect to their use as surgical gowns and drapes.

1.1  General  This document is the base standard for a number of other standards dealing with water treatment equipment, water, dialysis water, concentrates, and dialysis fluid (ISO 23500 series) and provides dialysis practitioners with guidance on the preparation of dialysis fluid for haemodialysis and related therapies and substitution fluid for use in online therapies, such as haemodiafiltration and haemofiltration. As such, this document functions as a recommended practice.
This document does not address clinical issues that might be associated with inappropriate usage of the water, dialysis water, concentrates, or dialysis fluid. Healthcare professionals involved in the provision of treatment for kidney failure should make the final decision regarding the applications with which these fluids are used, for example, haemodialysis, haemodiafiltration, high-flux haemodialysis, and the reprocessing of dialysers, and need to be aware of the issues that the use of inappropriate fluid quality raises in each of the therapies.
The concepts incorporated in this document should not be considered inflexible or static. The recommendations presented here should be reviewed periodically in order to assimilate increased understanding of the role of dialysis fluid purity in patient outcomes and technological developments.
1.2  Inclusions  This document addresses the user's responsibility for dialysis fluid once the equipment used in its preparation has been delivered and installed.
For the purposes of this document, dialysis fluid includes:
a)    dialysis water (see 3.17 for definition) used for the preparation of dialysis fluid and substitution fluid,
b)     dialysis water used for the preparation of concentrates at the user's facility,
c)    concentrates,
d)    the final dialysis fluid and substitution fluid.
The scope of this document includes
a)    the quality management of equipment used to treat and distribute water used for the preparation of dialysis fluid and substitution fluid, from the point at which municipal water enters the dialysis facility to the point at which the final dialysis fluid enters the dialyser or the point at which substitution fluid is infused,
b)    equipment used to prepare concentrate from powder or other highly concentrated media at a dialysis facility, and
c)    preparation of the final dialysis fluid or substitution fluid from dialysis water and concentrates.
NOTE       Because water used to prepare dialysis fluid can also be used to reprocess dialysers not marked intended for single use, this aspect of water use is also covered by this document.
1.3  Exclusions  This document does not apply to sorbent-based dialysis fluid regeneration systems that regenerate and recirculate small volumes of dialysis fluid, systems for continuous renal replacement therapy that use pre-packaged solutions, and systems and solutions for peritoneal dialysis.

1.1  General  This document is addressed to the manufacturer and/or supplier of water treatment systems and/or devices used for the express purpose of providing water for haemodialysis or related therapies.
1.2  Inclusions  This document covers devices used to treat potable water intended for use in the delivery of haemodialysis and related therapies, including water used for:
a)    the preparation of concentrates from powder or other highly concentrated media at a dialysis facility;
b)    the preparation of dialysis fluid, including dialysis fluid that can be used for the preparation of substitution fluid;
c)    the reprocessing of dialysers intended for single use where permitted for multiple uses,
d)    the reprocessing of dialysers not specifically marked as intended for single use.
This document includes all devices, piping and fittings between the point at which potable water is delivered to the water treatment system, and the point of use of the dialysis water. Examples of the devices are water purification devices, online water quality monitors (such as conductivity monitors), and piping systems for the distribution of dialysis water.
1.3  Exclusions  This document excludes dialysis fluid supply systems that proportion water and concentrates to produce dialysis fluid, sorbent dialysis fluid regeneration systems that regenerate and recirculate small volumes of the dialysis fluid, dialysis concentrates, haemodiafiltration systems, haemofiltration systems, systems that process dialysers for multiple uses, and peritoneal dialysis systems. Some of these devices, such as dialysis fluid delivery systems and concentrates, are addressed in other documents such as ISO 23500-4 and ISO 23500‑5,
This document also excludes the on-going surveillance of the purity of water used for dialysis fluid, concentrate preparation, or dialyser reprocessing which is addressed in ISO 23500‑1.
