Herga Technology updates products to IEC 60601-1 Edition 3.2 medical approval

Herga Technology has updated several products within its medically approved range to comply with IEC 60601-1 Edition 3.2, reaffirming its commitment to industry standards and regulations.

IEC 60601-1 is a series of safety standards that cover the safety and essential performance of medical electrical equipment to ensure its effectiveness and reliability in clinical use. As technology evolves and best practices change, the safety standard is amended to keep pace with the industry. Edition 3.2 improves and further develops the requirements of the previous version of the standard by updating outdated references, providing more definitions, and correcting or clarifying technical issues.

The Herga products that have been updated to comply with Edition 3.2 include:

Kate Double, Sales Manager at Herga Technology, stated, “IEC 60601-1 Edition 3.2 includes updates that may seem minor at first glance but could render previously certified products non-compliant. The transition to the latest revision has had no significant impact on Herga’s range of medically approved products, and each file was re-approved with only minor modifications, such as a change to the colour of an LED light in the Bluetooth products. It is important to Herga and the OEM customers we work with that our products adhere to the latest standards, helping to protect patients, healthcare professionals and users from the potential hazards and risks associated with medical electrical equipment.”
