This has resulted in the issuance of an IECEE CB Scheme certificate, which is recognized proof of Neola®’s safety and essential performance, issued by the accredited testing body FORCE Technology. The certificate is internationally recognized in about 50 countries and will form the basis for meeting the FDA’s regulatory requirements.

Neola® has obtained a CB certificate, signifying that the product has undergone a rigorous and comprehensive testing and evaluation process at an accredited and independent IECEE testing house, FORCE Technology. The certification for IEC 60601-1 and IEC 60601-1-2 indicates that the product meets specific quality requirements and international standards for medical devices in healthcare, with particularly high demands on safety, essential performance, and electromagnetic compatibility.

This is a crucial piece that the company has secured in preparation for the market approval of Neola® in the USA.

“The acquisition of the CB certificate for Neola® is a testament to the effectiveness of our structured product development process, as it indicates that the product meets the IEC 60601-1 family of medical device standards and our risk management process according to ISO 14971. Furthermore, FORCE has reviewed our product development to ensure it adheres to standards for usability evaluation and software development. That our medical device, Neola®, has met these rigorous requirements underscores our commitment to quality and patient safety.”, says CTO Sara Bergsten.

“We are achieving a highly significant milestone in line with our plan for the upcoming market launch in the USA.
