In general, we use many different symbols on our devides, in our quality docuents and in our packaging and marketing material. Symbols are great as they work across languages and can replace many words.
With the new Medical Device Regulations we have introduced a series of new symbols, all of which derive from Harmonized Standards, i.e. they are according to ISO standards.
But what do they actually mean? We have created the below legend to help you interpret thei meaning and hence the value they provide.
If you have any questions to the symbols or their use, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also visit the Registrations and Certifications page for a full list of the international industry, environmental and CSR standards and requirements, Tytex comply with.
