UL inmetro non active devices - 2012

  1. 1. Mandatory INMETROCertification for Syringes,Needles and Infusion/Transfusion EquipmentUL Health Sciences industryPresented May 2012UL and the UL logo are trademarks of UL LLC © 2012
  2. 2. Certification Required Products • Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use • Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use, FOR POWER-DRIVEN SYRINGE PUMPS • Sterile single-use syringes, with or without needle, FOR INSULIN • Sterile hypodermic needles for single use • Sterile injection needles for single use (DENTISTRY) • Infusion equipment for medical use (infusion sets for single use, GRAVITY FEED) • Infusion equipment for medical use (infusion equipment for use with PRESSURE INFUSION APPARATUS) • Transfusion equipment for medical use (transfusion sets for single use) Applicable legislation (all published on 29-DEC-2011): - Ordinance INMETRO # 501: needles - Ordinance INMETRO # 502: infusion and transfusion equipment - Ordinance INMETRO # 503: syringes 2
  3. 3. When is Certification Required?1. To apply for new registration with ANVISA.2. To revalidate current registrations.3. To renew current registrations.4. TO OBTAIN IMPORTATION CLEARANCE! Even products with valid registrations are required to be certified to obtain clearance from customs. Otherwise, products will be retained by customs at the port of entry.5. DEADLINE: JUN-2013 3
  4. 4. Certification Process: ProcedureTwo certification models are allowed: batch OR type testing with QMSaudit. • Batch (ISO model 7): Samples are collected at the port of entry. Products will be retained by customs until testing is completed. • Type testing + QMS evaluation (ISO model 5): See table below: # STEP WHERE? WHO DOES? STANDARD / CRITERIA ISO audit 1 Manufacturing site Closest UL Office (14 clauses from ISO 13485) Manufacturing site 2 Collecting samples Closest UL Office OR distribution center Details in the next Any 3rd party ILAC 3 Laboratory tests Any country slides accredited laboratory 4 Analysis of test reports Any country Any UL qualified office Engineering team 5 Issue of the certificate Brazil (UL Brazil) ISO audit + laboratory tests. Samples are collected from the manufacturing site 6 Annual Maintenance (or distribution center) and market in an alternating fashion. 4
  5. 5. Certification Process: ISO Audit The closet UL inspection center will verify the following clauses: - 4.2.3: Control of documents. - 4.2.4: Control of records. - 7.2.3: Customer communication. - 7.4.1: Purchasing Process. - 7.4.3: Verification of purchased product - 7.5.1: Control of production and service provision. - 7.5.3: Identification and traceability. - 7.5.5: Preservation of product. - 7.6: Control of monitoring and measuring devices. - 8.2.1: Customer Satisfaction. - 8.2.4: Monitoring and measurement of product. - 8.3: Control of nonconforming product. - 8.5.2: Corrective action. - 8.5.3: Preventive action. 5
  6. 6. Certification Process: Samples • Must be collected by the certification company • Can be collected at the manufacturing site OR at the distribution center • Sample size is defined by the respective INMETRO ordinance as follows: Initial Certification Annual Maintenance Product # Batches Units TOTAL # Batches Units TOTALSterile hypodermic syringes for single use 3 256 768 3 160 480Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use for use with POWER-DRIVEN SYRINGE PUMPS 3 256 768 3 160 480Sterile single-use syringes, with or without needle, FOR INSULIN 3 672 2016 3 420 1260Sterile hypodermic needles for single use 3 1632 4896 3 1020 3060Sterile injection needles for single use (DENTISTRY) 3 832 2496 3 520 1560Infusion equipment for medical use (infusion sets for single use, GRAVITY FEED) 3 225 675 3 150 450Infusion equipment for medical use (infusion equipment for use with PRESSURE INFUSION 3APPARATUS) 225 675 3 150 450Transfusion equipment for medical use (transfusion sets for single use) 3 210 630 3 140 420 • UL will collect 3 batches of samples. The second batch is sent for testing if the first one fails. The third batch is sent for testing if the first fails but the second is approved. • There is a zero error rejection criteria! If one sample fails, the entire batch is considered non-compliant. 6
  7. 7. Certification Process: Testing Standards forSyringes Standards Clauses Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use NBR ISO 7886-1 5 - 14 Sterile hypodermic syringes for single use, FOR POWER-DRIVEN SYRINGE PUMPS NBR ISO 7886-2 5-14, 14.3-14.5 Sterile single-use syringes, with or without needle, FOR INSULIN NBR ISO 8537 5-12, 14 7
  8. 8. Certification Process: Testing Standards forNeedles Standards Clauses Sterile hypodermic needles for single use NBR ISO 7864 4-9, 11-13 NBR ISO 594-1 3, 4.1-4.5 Sterile injection needles for single use - Dentistry ISO 7885 4.1-4.3, 5, 5.2, 5.4, 6, 6.3 8
  9. 9. Certification Process: Testing Standards forInfusion / Transfusion Equipment Standards Clause Infusion equipment for medical use – Infusion sets for single use gravity feed NBR ISO 8536-4 6.1-6.9, 6.11-1.13, 7.1-7.3 ISO 8536-5 6.2-6.4 Infusion equipment for medical use – Infusion equipment for use with pressure infusion apparatus ISO 8536-8 6.1-6.6, 6.8-6.9, 6.11-6.14, 7 ISO 8536-5 6.14, 6.2-6.4 Transfusion equipment for medical use – Transfusion sets for single use ISO 1136-4 5.1-5.5, 5.7-5.8, 5.11-5.12, 6.1-6.3 ISO 8536-5 6.2-6.4 9
  10. 10. Certification Process: UL File Construction –Issue of the Certificate - Marks • After completion of the ISO audit and laboratory tests, the UL engineer will be able to finalize the construction of the UL file and issue the certificate. The certificate is valid for 5 years and is subject to annual maintenance. The certificate is then published on both UL’s on-line directory and INMETRO’s website. • Usage of the certification marks is mandatory on the primary packaging of the device (see below; minimum sizes; other colours also allowed). OCP stands for “Product Certification Organization”. UL provides the UL mark graphic files to its customers. 50 mm 20 mm 11 mm 10
  11. 11. Certification Process: MaintenanceCertification maintenance consists of an annual ISO audit andlaboratory tests. The procedure for the audit and tests is the same asthose performed in the initial certification, except for 2 majordifferences: • Reduced number of samples for testing (please see slide 8) • Samples are collected from the manufacturing site (or distribution center) and market in an alternating fashion. 11
  12. 12. FAQ1. Is ISO 13485 certification mandatory? No, it’s not necessary, but the initial audit carried out by UL is based on this standard.2. Are tests performed by the manufacturer at its own facilities valid? Only tests performed by 3rd party ILAC accredited laboratories are accepted.3. Who performs the ISO audit? Any UL office with qualified ISO staff can carry out the audit on behalf of UL Brazil.4. How long does the ISO audit take? It takes one day for ISO verification ONLY. If samples need to be collected, then additional days might be required depending on the number of families of devices.5. What is the criteria to divide products into families and who determines the criteria? The criteria to group the different versions of the product into families is determined by the respective INMETRO ordinance. UL partners with the manufacturer to define the families. 12
