Watch Now: Webinar on IEC 60601-1-2 Ed 4.1
Electromagnetic incompatibility for medical devices poses potentially life-threatening complications. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing evaluates the interference potential among nearby products and the risk of injury or damage to persons or surroundings. These tests also determine compatibility between devices within their intended electromagnetic environments.
The IEC published its latest EMC standard for medical devices, IEC 60601-1-2 Ed 4.1, in September 2020. All medical devices will need to meet the first amendment (4.1) after a transition period to ease the departure from Edition 4.0. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will completely transition to the new edition by Dec. 17, 2023. UL’s webinar will cover more information on the transition dates for different regions.
