Health Canada Updates Recognized Standards

On July 27, 2012 Health Canada issued a new list of recognized standards. The issuing notice says the changes consist of:

  1. 16 new editions of currently recognized standards were added to replace previous editions;
  2. 13 superseded standards were removed.

These changes are required in order to harmonize the list with the previously published guidance on the transition between second and third edition versions of the IEC 60601 family of standards which took effect June 1, 2012.
