We are a National Certification Body (NCB), and a Certification Body Test Laboratory (CBTL) under the IECEE’s Worldwide System for Conformity Testing and Certification of Electronic Equipment and Components.We understand that the international standard for Application of Risk Management to Medical Devices is a mandatory requirement when demonstrating compliance to the 3rd Edition of EN/IEC 60601-1. Without this documentation, compliance to EN/IEC 60601-1 3rd Edition is not possible; we can assist you with this and provide support and guidance on ISO 14971 risk management including:
- Bespoke and one-to-one training
- Documentation and procedure review
- Production of essential documentation
- Mentoring and retainer contracts
Our safety experts understand the challenge of electrical safety testing of medical products for exporting to the global market and assist manufacturers in achieving increased speed to market, resulting in successful product launches.
