IEC 60601 Consultancy & Training
Lorit Consultancy’s team has years of experience in the implementation and application of the IEC 60601 series of standards for safety requirements for medical electrical (ME) equipment and systems.
Whether you need consulting, support or training – we support your team with our expertise in safe product design.
Why is the IEC 60601 standard of great importance?
Basic safety and essential performance of ME equipment and ME systems are fundamental requirements for medical devices to minimise the likelihood of harm during their use. These requirements range from correct classification and protection against hazards through to safe design.
The IEC 60601-1 standard is a prerequisite for the market introduction of medical devices in many countries. Therefore, a clear understanding of the standard is crucial in the development of ME devices and systems.
IEC 60601 Relation to other standards
For the launch of products in global markets, a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory landscape is required, i.e. which standards or international directives may influence the requirements of IEC 60601-1.
IEC 60601-1 is primarily focused on device safety and is strongly linked to ISO 14971. Risks can be very diverse and take into account many different factors that require broad expertise.
