Is EN/IEC 60417 still current?




Is IEC 60417 still current? My go to sites list withdrawn for the 1999 version, but I can't find a newer version. IEC lists the database subscription for this and IEC 7000, but no standard. Does EN 15223 have all of the symbols I need now (for medical electrical equipment)? I'm trying to put the standards list together for a new project, and IEC 60417 shows up in the list from an older version. We don't have a copy here, though, so I'm trying to figure out if we need to purchase it.


IEC 60417 still exists - but not in 'paper' form.

It is now a database that works alongside ISO 7000.

More info here:

IEC 60601-1:2005 lists, as a Normative Reference IEC60417:2002

IEC 60601-1:2012 (Version 3.1) lists it as an undated Reference; it is added to without there having to be a new version.

The best list for electrical equipment is IEC TR 60878:2003 -
Graphical symbols for electrical equipment in medical practice (which is being revised at the moment).


Great! That makes sense. I have IEC TR 60878:2003, too, but couldn't figure out where it fit into the picture.
