FR Recognition List Number 034 Date of Recognition 01/30/2014 
FR Recognition Number 12-247
ISO 11990-1 First edition 2011-08-01
Lasers and laser-related equipment - Determination of laser resistance of tracheal tubes - Part 1: Tracheal tube shaft
This part of ISO 11990 specifies a method of testing the continuous wave (cw) resistance of the shaft of a tracheal tube designed to resist ignition by a laser. It is not applicable to other components of the system, such as the inflation system and cuff, which are defined in ISO 11990-2 (see Note 1).

This part of ISO 11990 can be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions. It does not describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual clinical use conditions. However, the results of this test can be used as one element of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all factors pertinent to an assessment of the hazard of a particular end use.

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FDA recognition of ISO 11990-1 Frist edition [Rec# 12-247] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 11990 Third edition [Rec# 12-323]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 12-247] until December 28, 2019. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 12-247] will not be accepted.
