ISO 5832-9 Third edition 2019-02
Implants for surgery - Metallic materials - Part 9: Wrought high nitrogen stainless steel
This document specifies the characteristics of, and corresponding test methods for, wrought stainless steel containing a mass fraction of 0,25 % to 0,50 % nitrogen for use in the manufacture of surgical implants for which high levels of strength and corrosion resistance are required.

NOTE 1 The mechanical properties of a sample obtained from a finished product made of this alloy can differ from those specified in this document.

NOTE 2 Requirements for other stainless steels for implants for surgery can be found in ISO 5832-1.
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FDA recognition of ISO 5832-9 Second edition 2007-06-15 [Rec# 8-150] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 5832-9 Third edition 2019-02 [Rec# 8-492].
