Medical Practice Electrical equipment

Medical research and clinical healthcare delivery enterprises are found to enjoy the "halo-effect" of an affiliation with a college or university because patients and families believe that cutting edge care--in the case of rare diseases--is developed in large research university hospitals. Conversely, university medical schools need patients for instructional purposes.

One of the subcommittees of International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee 62 (IEC TC/62) released a redline (candidate revision) now is open for public review: IEC 63120 ED1: Refurbishment of medical electrical equipment, medical electrical systems and sub-assemblies and reuse of components as part of the extended life-cycle.  We track it on our provisional workspace*:

Collaborative Workspace for IEC Consensus Products

University affiliated medical research and healthcare delivery enterprises are large stakeholders in this space so we keep pace by collaborating with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee (E&H) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society.

We encourage our colleagues working in university-affiliated healthcare enterprises to obtain a FREE IEC Public Commenting Account to access the redline linked below:

Common aspects of electrical equipment used in medical practice equipment

Closing Date: 2020-03-27

It is our custom to collaborate with the US National Committee to the International Electrotechnical Commission (USNA/IEC) primarily, though we have significant professional relationships with academic scholars in other nations through the IEEE Standards Association and the E&H Committee.  We are happy to discuss any consensus product, any day at 11 AM Eastern time, however the expertise for responding to invitations for public comment like this is usually present during the E&H Committee meetings which take place four times monthly in European and American time zones.
