4 General requirements
4.1 The nomenclature to be used for components of infusion sets and of a stand‑alone air‑inlet device is given in Figures 1, 2 and 3. These figures illustrate examples of the configuration of infusion sets and air-inlet devices; other configurations may be used provided they lead to the same results.
5 Designation
Designation shall follow label requirements according to Clause 10.
6 Materials
The materials from which the infusion set, its components and the stand‑alone air‑inlet device are manufactured (as described in Clause 4) shall comply with the requirements specified in Clause 7.Where components of the infusion set come into contact with solutions, the materials shall also comply with the requirements specified in Clauses 8 and 9.
7.1 Particulate contamination
The infusion set and stand‑alone air‑inlet device shall be manufactured under conditions that minimize particulate contamination. All parts shall be smooth and clean at the fluid pathway surfaces. When tested as specified in A.2, the number of particles shall not exceed the contamination index limit.
