Full Description

Preface

This is the third edition of CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601-1-6, Medical electrical equipment - Part 1-6: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance - Collateral standard: Usability, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) Standard 60601-1-6 (third edition, 2010-01). It supersedes the previous edition, published in 2008 as CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601-1-6 (adopted IEC 60601-1-6:2006). It is one in a series of Standards issued by CSA under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code.

Scope

This International Standard specifies a PROCESS for a MANUFACTURER to analyse, specify, design, VERIFY and VALIDATE USABILITY, as it relates to BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of MEDICAL ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT.

This USABILITY ENGINEERING PROCESS assesses and mitigates RISKS caused by USABILITY problems associated with CORRECT USE and USE ERRORS, i.e., NORMAL USE. It can be used to identify but does not assess or mitigate RISKS associated with ABNORMAL USE.

If the USABILITY ENGINEERING PROCESS detailed in this collateral standard has been complied with and the acceptance criteria documented in the USABILITY VALIDATION plan have been met (see 5.9 of IEC 62366:2007), then the RESIDUAL RISKS, as defined in ISO 14971, associated with USABILITY of ME EQUIPMENT are presumed to be acceptable, unless there is OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE to the contrary (see 4.1.2 of IEC 62366:2007).
