Risk Management of Medical Devices Regarding Electromagnetic Disturbances

The risk management requirements of EN/IEC/ANSI/AMIEE 60601-1-2 Edition 3 (2007) and IEC 60601-1-2 Edition 4 (2014) are mostly either ignored or misunderstood by manufacturers, their EMC test labs, and medical regulatory assessors (other than in Germany). This article describes what they are, and a practical method for complying with them to make medical devices, equipment and systems safe enough as regards the consequences of electromagnetic interference (EMI).
