Withdrawn (Edition 2, 2012)


This part of ISO 11608 specifies the functional and design considerations for containers to be used with

needle-based injection systems (NIS) that fulfil the specifications of ISO 11608-1. It is applicable to single and

multi-dose containers (either filled by the manufacturer or by the end-user) which can be provided to the enduser

integrated in the NIS or assembled with the NIS at the time of use.

This part of ISO 11608 includes specifications and test methods to describe and evaluate cartridges for use

in NIS with pen needles (as defined in ISO 11608-2) and outlines design considerations for other potential

containers, including syringes to be used with a NIS.

This part of ISO 11608 is not applicable to cartridges intended for dental use.

Syringes and needles that are sold separately and not intended for use in a NIS are outside the scope of this

part of ISO 11608.

NOTE See ISO 7864 (needles), ISO 8537 (insulin syringes) and ISO 7886-1 (manual syringes).
