NSAI are carrying out a survey to gauge the interest in a hosting a workshop to discuss the impact of changes to the ISO 80369 series of standards.

For example: ISO 80369-7 – Small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications – Part 7: Connectors for intravascular or hypodermic applications.

ISO 80369-7 specifies dimensions and requirements for the design and functional performance of small-bore connectors intended to be used for connections in intravascular applications or hypodermic connections in hypodermic applications of medical devices and accessories.

The revision of ISO 80369-7 in 2016 has introduced new requirements such as additional dimensions selected to represent the current design and dimensions of luer connectors in clinical use.  The addition of the new requirements was made to further reduce the risk of misconnection with other small-bore connectors.

These changes will impact the design, manufacture and testing of connectors and national manufacturers and suppliers need to develop a plan to move to these new requirements.

With sufficient interest NSAI will h­­ost a workshop to highlight issues with transitioning to the ISO 80369-7 standard.
