Enteral applications - ISO 18250-3

ISO 18250-3 - Medical devices — Connectors for reservoir delivery systems for healthcare applications — Part 3: Enteral applications


The ISO 18250-3 standard specifies dimensions and requirements for the design and functional performance of connectors intended to be used on enteral reservoirs.

The test methods include:

  • Leakage by pressure decay
  • Positive pressure liquid leakage
  • Subatmospheric-pressure air leakage
  • Stress cracking
  • Resistance to separation from axial load
  • Resistance to separation from unscrewing
  • Resistance to overriding
  • Disconnection by unscrewing
