Is there an equivalent to Eurocodes for other types of devices or machines? Such as robots, scientific instruments, electronics, ...

  • $\begingroup$ @SolarMike Yes I think ISO sounds quite like it. Not sure about BS. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The CE mark regulation is similar in purpose and function to the eurocode 'harmonized technical rules'. $\endgroup$

Yes, there are similar codes and standards for various types of devices and machines. For example:

  • Robotics: ISO 10218, Safety requirements for industrial robots, provides safety requirements for robots and robotic systems.
  • Scientific Instruments: ISO 15190, Medical laboratories - Requirements for quality and competence, covers the quality management of medical laboratories and the requirements for competence of testing and calibration laboratories.
  • Electronics: IEC 60601, Medical electrical equipment - Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, provides requirements for electrical medical equipment and systems.

These standards and codes are specific to their respective industries and provide guidelines for design, manufacturing, and performance of devices and machines, ensuring their safety and reliability.

  • $\begingroup$ Eurocode is a code for the use of ISO standards. It specifies, among other things, which standards should be used, and how. It's not equivalent to an ISO standard. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the comment. Poor choice of works on my part. I edited to say "similar" codes instead of equivelant. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @david Eurocode is not a single standard. Eurocodes are a set of civil engineering CEN standards starting with designations EN 199x. They, like many other standards also reference other standards (and definitely not just ISO). ISO and CEN cooperate to avoid duplicate standards thanks to the Vienna agreement. $\endgroup$ Feb 6, 2023 at 19:07
