IEC 60601-2-8:2010+A1:2015 establishes particular basic safety and essential performance requirements for therapeutic X-ray equipment with nominal X-ray tube voltages in the range 10 kV to 1 MV when connected to alternating current supply mains. It includes the
requirements for accuracy and reproducibility of performance to the
extent that these are related to radiation quality and the quantity
of ionizing radiation produced and thus must be considered as
aspects of safety. This second edition cancels and replaces the
first edition of IEC 60601-2-8. This edition constitutes a technical
revision which brings this standard in line with the third edition
of IEC 60601-1 and its collateral standards.
This consolidated version consists of the second edition (2010)
and its amendment 1 (2015). Therefore, no need to order amendment in
addition to this publication.
