Countries around the world have defined standards to regulate quality control and compliance of medical displays. Ensuring compliance with these standards is an important and complicated aspect within the medical quality assurance process.
Even though in many regions (e.g. Western Europe, North America and Japan), medical standards have been in place for years, they are becoming stricter. In Germany, for example, the DIN standard (DIN 6868-157) defines strict requirements based on how (use cases) and where (room classes based on the level of ambient light) medical displays are used.
At the same time, other regions, such as Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and countries in Africa and across Latin America are starting to define and enforce similar guidelines. Initiatives such as the Standards Alliance Project to promote regulatory practices in Latin America clearly demonstrate this evolution.
