FR Recognition List Number 047 Date of Entry 08/21/2017 
FR Recognition Number 8-456
ISO 13179-1 First edition 2014-06-01
Implants for surgery--Plasma-sprayed unalloyed titanium coatings on metallic surgical implants -- Part 1: General requirements
This part of ISO 13179 specifies general requirements for plasma-sprayed unalloyed titanium coatings on metallic surgical implants.

This part of ISO 13179 applies to plasma spraying in air and in vacuum.

This part of ISO 13179 does not apply to coatings made of other materials than unalloyed titanium or coatings realized by another technology than plasma spraying.

NOTE 1 A quality management system can be useful, e.g. as described in ISO 13485. Requirements for the competence of testing laboratories can be found in ISO/IEC 17025.
Extent of Recognition
