FR Recognition List Number 031 Date of Entry 08/06/2013 
FR Recognition Number 3-116
ISO 25539-2 Second edition 2012-12-01
Cardiovascular implants - Endovascular devices - Part 2: Vascular stents
U.S. Identical Adoption
ANSI AAMI ISO 25539-2:2012
Cardiovascular implants - Endovascular devices - Part 2: Vascular stents
This part of ISO 25539 specifies requirements for vascular stents, based upon current medical
knowledge. With regard to safety, it gives requirements for intended performance, design attributes,
materials, design evaluation, manufacturing, sterilization, packaging and information supplied by the
manufacturer. It should be considered as a supplement to ISO 14630, which specifies general
requirements for the performance of non-active surgical implants.
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FDA recognition of ISO 25539-2 Second edition 2012-12 [Rec# 3-116] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 25539-2 Third edition 2020-09 [Rec# 3-181].
