FR Recognition Number 19-30
AIM Standard 7351731 Rev. 2.00 2017-02-23
Medical Electrical Equipment and System Electromagnetic Immunity Test for Exposure to Radio Frequency Identification Readers - An AIM Standard
This document provides external medical device manufactures and end-users with guidance on how to evaluate their devices for interaction with radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. The test procedures in this document are based on experimental results from several AIM members to identify the RFID reader (operating under U.S. FCC guidelines) conditions that present the largest radio frequency (RF) spectrum. Test protocols are included for the major commercial implementations of RFID as standardized by ISO, including LF, HF, and UHF RFID. Both active and passive ISO RFID standards are covered in this document.
Extent of Recognition

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FDA recognition of AIM Standard 7351731 Rev. 2.00 2017-02-23 [Rec# 19-30] will be superseded by recognition of AIM Standard 7351731 Rev. 3.00 2021-06-4 [Rec# 19-45].
