Connectors for enteral applications - ISO 80369-3

Small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications — Part 3: Connectors for enteral applications


This ISO 80369-3 part specifies the design and the dimensions and drawings of small-bore connectors intended for use in enteral applications.

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
