Regulation of Medical Devices - Building Capabilities, Ensuring Quality and Patient Safety
Last month we presented at the ‘Regulation of Medical Devices – Building Capabilities, Ensuring Quality and Patient Safety’ event in Delhi. The event focused on upcoming regulation for medical devices/orthopedic implants in India. Our Associate Vice President, Bodhisatya Sarker, discussed how the Indian Joint Registry (IJR) is enhancing patient safety, helping the industry with market reports and helping the regulator to monitor critical medical devices such as orthopedic implants. The event was attended by delegates of the Health Ministry including CDSCO, NITI Aayog and renowned doctors from the Orthopedic Sector. The Government has proposed that orthopedic implants will be regulated under a separate Act, rather than under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act (1940) as the Health Ministry have previously been pushing for. This will enable orthopedic implants to be regulated as a separate entity.
