MEDICAL INSPECTION

Regulatory Requirements for Medical Equipment

Medical devices are becoming more important in the health care sector. One of the major issues for companies developing and producing medical devices is to be updated on the regulatory requirements and implement them in the process.

Manufacturers of medical devices need to adjust to the regulatory framework in the country where the product is sold. This constitutes a great problem for manufacturers, especially for companies selling their products in several countries. Competent authorities worldwide have begun to realize the problem and collaborate to harmonize the regulations.
