Medical device applicability to WEEE

#1
The WEEE directive states that it does not apply to "medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices, where such devices are expected to be infective prior to end of life, and active implantable medical devices." (Article 2, point 4g)

Where would I find a definition for infective?

If the device is expected to be contaminated with body fluids, does that mean it is infective? Biologically speaking, the fluid would only be infective if the patient had an infection, which is a clinical determination.
