The CB Scheme is an international agreement between Certification Bodies on mutual recognition of test results. This enables manufactures of electro-medical devices to streamline testing requirements for the 49 member countries of the program (including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Korea, United-States, India, Japan, Russia and others).
The IECEE (International Electro technical Committee for Conformity Testing to Standards), which created the CB Scheme for electrical equipment, recognizes GMED as an organization of certification (National Certification Body) and Certification Body Testing Laboratory (CBTL) under the international agreements of the CB Scheme (AHJ) for medical devices.
GMED performed tests are based on IEC standards including the national deviations for different countries. The main areas of GMED recognitions are:
- IEC 60601-1 ed 2: General safety rules
- IEC 60601-1-1: Safety of electrical systems
- IEC 60601-1-2: Electromagnetic compatibility
- IEC 60601-1-3: Protection against radiation from X-ray equipment
- IEC 60601-2-7: Safety generators radiological diagnostic X-ray groups
- IEC 60601-2-32: Safety-related equipment X-ray
- IEC 60601-2-18: Safety of endoscopic equipment
- IEC 60601-2-38: Safety of electric beds
- IEC 60601-2-43: Safety of response procedures for X-ray equipment
