IEC 60601 & IEC 61010 testing and certification services*Active Medical Electrical Equipment & Inactive Medical Mevices

In the field of active medical devices/electrical equipment, the testing and certification requirements are documented and internationally harmonized under the standard family IEC 60601. Due to identical requirements of IEC and EN 60601, IEC defines the assumption of conformity to the Medical Device Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC.

In vitro diagnostic medical devices testing and certification requirements must be in accordance with IEC 61010-101 which is called up by the In Vitro Diagnostic Devices Directive (IVDD) 98/79/EC.

Eurofins Medical Device Testing performs safety and essential performance testing according to IEC 60601 and IEC 61010 standards for medical electrical equipment and in vitro diagnostic medical devices. We document the results with test reports and certificates, and offer notified body and NRTL services.
