Title Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 2-040: Particular requirements for sterilizers and washer-disinfectors used to treat medical materials
Project Number 16200
Abstract/Scope This International Standard specifies safety requirements for electrical equipment intended for sterilization, washing, and disinfection of medical materials in the medical, veterinary, pharmaceutical and laboratory fields, when used under the environmental conditions of 1.4. This document consolidates the requirements of four standards, EN 61010-2-041, EN 61010-2-042, EN 61010-2-043 and EN 61010-2-045, which are withdrawn, and aligns them with the second edition (2001) of EN 61010-1:Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use - Part 1: General requirements. It has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.
