Information on the new edition of ISO 15223-1 – Medical devices – Symbols to be used on medical device labels, labeling and information provided with them – Part 1: General requirements

The ISO 15223-1 standard is a globally accepted document that applies to symbols used in a wide variety of medical devices, both on their packaging and in the accompanying information.
