“ISO 20695 : Enteral feeding catheters and enteral giving sets for single use and their connectors”
ISO 20695 is under development. This enteral feeding device standard is based on the existing European standards:
- EN 1615 : “Enteral feeding catheters and enteral giving sets for single use and their connectors – Design and testing”
- EN 1618 : “Catheters other than intravascular catheters – Test methods for common properties”
The objective of ISO 20695 is to revise and improve the existing EN1615/EN1618, incorporate the ISO 80369-3 connectors and convert these European Standards into one International Standard.
The ISO 20695 standard will specify requirements for the design and testing of all single-use enteral feeding devices (feeding tubes, syringes, extension lines…) and their connection.
The inclusion of the Low Dose Tip (LDT) syringe’s design into ISO 20695 is currently under discussed and is being challenged.
