Temperature Screening From The Protection Bureau and ZKTeco Violate IEC Standards and FDA Correct Operation

By John Honovich and Joey Walter, Published Jun 22, 2020, 10:34am EDT

ZKTeco and integrator The Protection Bureau are marketing an installation that violates IEC febrile screening standards, FDA correct operation, and ironically ZKTeco's own installation instructions.

This is a risk to public safety, as these medical devices are being used to screen and, per the video, lock out people the ZKTeco system determines to have a high temperature.

However, The Protection Bureau responded declaring that they "never refer to this device as a medical device" though this ZKTeco offering, per FDA definition, is a medical device.
