Technological and Regulatory requirements:

By merging the varions types of techniques and by making constant effort of
investment in research and development the Medical Industry has provided
notable innovations for the benefit of patients:

  • - less invasive surgery
    - laser applications
    - ambulatory care
    - resuscitation, monitoring and intensive care
    - sophisticated implants
    - technical aids (for disabled persons)

Due to the specific use of medical equipment on patients, safety and prevention of risky effects on the body, particular regulations have to be observed in three directions:

  • - quality and safety policy
    - sanitary policy
    - medical efficiency

Therefore, CE marking becomes the authorized procedure to put a medical device on the market but further procedures have to be fulfilled to meet requirements of social, budgetary and health systems.
