This International Standard is applicable to medical diagnostic ultrasonic equipment.
It establishes requirements for the declaration of the acoustic output information:
- to be presented in technical data sheets supplied to prospective purchasers of equipment by manufacturers;
- to be declared in the accompanying literature/manual supplied by manufacturers;
- as background information to be made available on request to interested parties by manufacturers.
It also gives exemption conditions for equipment generating low acoustic output levels.
