FR Recognition Number 1-177
Standard(Included in ASCA)
ISO  80601-2-74 Second edition 2021-07
Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-74: Particular requirements for basic safety and essential performance of respiratory humidifying equipment
Scope/Abstract
This document applies to the basic safety and essential performance of a humidifier, also hereafter referred to as ME equipment, in combination with its accessories, the combination also hereafter referred to as ME system.

This document is also applicable to those accessories intended by their manufacturer to be connected to a humidifier where the characteristics of those accessories can affect the basic safety or essential performance of the humidifier.

EXAMPLE 1 Heated breathing tubes (heated-wire breathing tubes) or ME equipment intended to control these heated breathing tubes (heated breathing tube controllers).

NOTE 1 Heated breathing tubes and their controllers are ME equipment and are subject to the requirements of IEC 60601‑1.

NOTE 2 ISO 5367 specifies other safety and performance requirements for breathing tubes.

This document includes requirements for the different medical uses of humidification, such as invasive ventilation, non-invasive ventilation, nasal high-flow therapy, and obstructive sleep apnoea therapy, as well as humidification therapy for tracheostomy patients.

NOTE 3 A humidifier can be integrated into other equipment. When this is the case, the requirements of the other equipment also apply to the humidifier.

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.
This standard is recognized on a scientific basis: Performance specification.
This standard is recognized on a regulatory basis: Pre-market.

NOTE: for devices with a specific intended use population, e.g. neonates, the manufacturer should contact the review team to address sections indicating not to have essential performance prior to testing:
Specifically, Table 201.101- For all other category 2 HUMIDIFIERS for the purposes of this document, category 2 HUMIDIFIERS are considered to not have ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE, and
Subclause 201.104.1- For a CATEGORY 2 HUMIDIFIER, the ALARM CONDITION is not required.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ISO 80601-2-74 First edition 2017-05 [Rec# 1-138] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 80601-2-74 Second edition 2021-07 [Rec# 1-177]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 1-138] until July 4, 2027. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 1-138] will not be accepted.
