Devices Affected:
Implantable Medical Devices
Processes Affected:
510(K), PMA, IDE, PDP, HDE, Design Controls
Type of Standard:
 International, Horizontal
Extent of Recognition:
This standard includes requirements for chemical compositions, metallurgical characteristics, and mechanical properties in various conditions. Although this material has a long history of successful use for implants, the standard has no specific requirements regarding biologic response. Refer to the appropriate biocompatibility standards for specific biocompatibility requirements. Additional information must be provided to document that the design of the product will provide adequate mechanical properties for the particular application. Depending on the device application, additional material property data (such as fatigue life, wear and abrasion resistance, pitting or crevice corrosion resistance, and magnetic susceptibility) may be required beyond what is addressed by this standard.
