    Dear all,

    May I know that if the implantable (for 1 year) class III device shelf life is last date, can I still use the device at the last date of shelf life ?

    Thanks

    Regards
    Lim Sing Wee

    Hi, Typically, yes, you should be able to use a device through to the last date of the shelf-life. However, I would recommend carefully reading the IFU for any exclusions and also checking that the device has been stored in accordance with the IFU.

    Yes off course. You can use it as long as it is working fine regardless of its self life expiration.
