FR Recognition Number 13-79
Standard
IEC 62304 Edition 1.1 2015-06 CONSOLIDATED VERSION
Medical device software - Software life cycle processes
U.S. Identical Adoption
ANSI AAMI IEC 62304:2006/A1:2016
Medical device software - Software life cycle processes [Including Amendment 1 (2016)]
Scope/Abstract
IEC 62304:2006+A1:2015 Defines the life cycle requirements for medical device software. The set of processes, activities, and tasks described in this standard establishes a common framework for medical device software life cycle processes. Applies to the development and maintenance of medical device software when software is itself a medical device or when software is an embedded or integral part of the final medical device. This standard does not cover validation and final release of the medical device, even when the medical device consists entirely of software. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2006) and its amendment 1 (2015).
Extent of Recognition
Complete standard
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ANSI AAMI IEC 62304:2006 [Rec# 13-32] will be superseded by recognition of IEC 62304 Edition 1.1 2015-06 CONSOLIDATED VERSION [Rec# 13-79].
