FR Recognition List Number 059 Date of Entry 12/19/2022 
FR Recognition Number 10-132
ISO  10942 Third edition 2022-01
Ophthalmic instruments - Direct ophthalmoscopes
This document, together with ISO 15004-1 and ISO 15004-2, specifies minimum requirements and test methods for hand-held direct ophthalmoscopes designed for directly observing the eye fundus.

This document takes precedence over ISO 15004-1 and ISO 15004-2, if differences exist.
Extent of Recognition
Partial recognition. The following part(s) of the standard is (are) not recognized:
Any reference to ISO 15004-2 in the 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.

This standard is recognized in part because:
Reference to ISO 15004-2 for light hazard protection is in conflict with another FDA-recognized standard (See ANSI Z80.36-2021, reference #2 listed below). FDA has replaced ISO 15004-2 with ANSI Z80.36 as the recognized standard for light hazard protection in ophthalmic instruments.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ISO 10942 Second edition 2006-06-01 [Rec# 10-37] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 10942 Third edition 2022-01 [Rec# 10-132]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 10-37] until December 17, 2023. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 10-37] will not be accepted.
