Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment

Safe and reliable equipment is essential for patient safety and quality of care in anaesthesia and respiratory medicine.

If you design, develop, produce, install or service any medical device you need to comply with the requirements set out in the relevant European Directives:

Standardization in the field of anaesthetic and respiratory equipment involves the production of a wide variety of standards in relation to anaesthetic machines, lung ventilators and medical gas supply and breathing systems.

Clinicians, government agencies and representatives of manufacturers work together within BSI committees to produce a body of international standards which will serve to facilitate the exchange of goods and services by eliminating technical barriers while taking account of health and safety issues (for both patient and operator) and environmental protection.

The committees in this area are currently heavily involved in the production of a series of ISO 8835 standards which when complete will provide a truly international standard for anaesthetic equipment.
