BS EN 1837 is an International Standard which specifies essential requirements and related test methods for non electrically driven portable infusion devices1). It applies to devices designed for continuous (fixed or adjustable) flow and/or for bolus application.

These devices can be used in health care and non-health care settings. They can be applied or administered by health care professionals or by the intended patient.

These devices can be pre-filled by the manufacturer or filled before use by a health care professional or the intended patient.
