Starting in September of the following year, a new voluntary standard will be in effect in our country. Russian National Standard specialists have adopted a new Russian National Standard that applies to medical equipment.  The official name of the Russian National Standard is “Monitoring the Technical Condition and Operation of Medical Equipment: Fundamental Provisions”. Subject to the monitoring of this standard are all medical equipment and devices used for diagnosis, preventive treatment, and immediate patient treatment.

Special requirements are established in the new Russian National Standard on the quality of such products both in preparation of operations as well as during actual operation.

Open discussion of this national standard took place between 09/09/2014 and 25/09/2014.
