Active Medical Devices and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices

Our international network of Electrical and Electronics (E&E) laboratories provide the safety testing required for medical electrical equipment and active medical devices according to the Medical Devices Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Directive (IVDD) 98/79/EC.

The testing, certification and global market access approvals services we offer include those for the IEC 60601 series (for the MDD 93/42/EEC) and IEC 61010 series (for the IVDD 98/79/EC).

We provide test reports and certificates according to CB Scheme and ILAC accreditation. Through Eurofins MET labs we can also provide product safety compliance for the United States and Canada (FDA and Health Canada) including OSHA NRTL certification.

*Standards in our scope include all the necessary tests for safety and performance, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio/wireless testing including (but not limited to):


  • EN 60601-1; base standard
  • IEC 60601-1-1; medical electrical systems

Please inquire on a case by case basis for testing of your, active medical devices (often referred to as medical electrical equipment) and non-active medical devices.

Performance Testing

In addition to testing for compliance with the standards above, our medical device testing includes a fully comprehensive range of Performance Testing covering

  • Functionality
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Durability and reliability
  • Performance tests to many FDA Guidance Documents, AAMI and ANSI standards
  • Special tests to establish and/or validate claims on new medical devices
  • Unique testing facilities for special medical devices; electro-surgical devices, ultrasound equipment, electric wheelchairs etc.
  • Litigation support testing, expert witness
  • Failure analysis

Eurofins offer a range of additional services through our laboratory networks including Digital testing and cyber Security, and bio-compatibility/ bio-pharmacological testing.
