In the U.S. regulatory system, emergency call systems are considered nonmedical devices and are subject to distinct standards that address their critical functions.
UL has developed emergency call standards, and our experts have specific knowledge of the intent behind the standards. This uniquely enables UL to support manufacturers that wish to bring to market innovative new technology that falls outside the existing requirements.
- UL 1069 “Hospital Signaling and Nurse Call Equipment”
This standard applies to the traditional equipment found in the hospital environment. More and more, with wireless technologies, these systems also require interoperability and interference reliability testing to demonstrate they will continue to function in the noisy environments often found in acute care situations.
- UL 2560 “Emergency Call Systems for Assisted Living and Independent Living Facilities”
Introduced in 2011, the UL 2560 standard was driven by industry to address the special environmental challenges outside of a hospital, but within close proximity to healthcare providers.
We can provide integrated test plans to meet two or more standards concurrently, minimizing redundant testing and saving time.
- GAP assessments
- Testing in UL’s world class facilities for EMC, software validation, and wireless security
- UL certification mark to demonstrate to consumers, healthcare providers, and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ’s) that new technologies comply with the requirements
