|Publication Date:||1 October 2012|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
This specification covers the requirements of forged stainless steel for surgical implants when the material forged conforms to Specifications F138 (UNS S31673), F1314 (UNS S21910), F1586 (UNS S31675), F2229 (UNS S29108), or F2581 (UNS R56320).
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
