BS EN 60601-1:2006, “Medical electrical equipment – General requirements for basic safety and essential performance,” has just been modified by a new Corrigendum 1 correction. The document is the official English language edition of EN 60601-1.
The corrigendum dated May 31st, 2011, is a consolidated implementation of IEC corrigenda dated in December 2006 and December 2007 (tagged) for the source document IEC 60601-1. It’s also the implementation of CENELEC corrigendum March 2010, as well as the modification of CENELEC Foreword and Annexes ZA and ZZ.
The start and finish of text introduced or altered by IEC corrigendum December 2006 is indicated in the text by one tag. Text altered by IEC corrigendum December 2007 is indicated in the text by another. There are no clear indications of the location of the modifications to the foreword, the two annexes or the CENELEC Corrigendum. A review of the previous edition against this one will be necessary. However, the page count of both the 2006 Edition and this new issue remains constant at 384 pages.
This corrected issue supersedes BS EN 60601-1:1990 and BS EN 60601-1-4:1997 which are declared obsolete and are scheduled for withdrawl on June 1, 2012. It also supersedes BS EN 60601-1-1:2001 which is withdrawn with the publication of this new revision.
