Hello ALL,

As you know, the definition of "patient" in IEC 60601-1 includes animal. I am wondering if devices used in veterinary lab also fall within the scope of MDD 93/42/eec.

Please share your insight.

Thanks,
Roland

Veterinary devices are not under the scope of MDD 93/42/eec.

That means there is no regulations for devices used in veterinary medicine?
You mean, regulations in the EU? Nope, although you may need to follow other applicable directives, if any.
