I am trying to get a consensus on the need to perform ES tests on non-TEE probes. I have not found anything mentioning the requirement but found test equipment available to do both the standard and TEE probes.

While there is no requirement to perform electrical safety testing on non-TEE probes, it is highly recommended. The easiest way to do this is to use your safety analyzer on “chassis leakage” mode using the same process for chassis leakage. Place the probe from the analyzer in a water bath or in the top of a water filled phantom. Then insert a transducer in the bath as well, completing the circuit. The probe should be energized by the system and actively firing (system not in “freeze”). This will give transducer leakage.
