TC 10 Electrical Equipment in Medical Practice

Scope/Introduction: || back to top

ETCI TC10 is responsible for the standardisation of electrical equipment used in medical practice. The Committee contributes to CENELEC TC62 and also to IEC TC62 and its four subcommittees:

  • SC62A: Common Aspects of Electrical Equipment used in Medical Practice
  • SC62B: Diagnostic Imaging Equipment
  • SC62C: Equipment for Radiotherapy, Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Dosimetry
  • SC62D: Electromedical Equipment

ETCI TC10 provides a national focal point for the development of the IEC 601 series of standards. The goal of the IEC 601 standards is to improve safety in the use of medical electrical equipment by providing a body of standards that assist:

  • Manufacturers in designing and assembling safe medical electrical equipment and systems
  • Manufacturers, test houses and regulatory authorities in assessing compliance with requirements set forth in the standard
  • Health care professionals in managing the risks associated with use of these products

ETCI TC10 is also responsible for coordinating the participation of Irish experts in a number of the 32 Working Groups integral to IEC TC62.
