Dec. 13, 2018

The Indian government proposes to include surgical gowns and drapes as medical devices and the Medical Technology Association of India says it welcomes the change.

The group says the proposal by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) would ensure uniformity of quality in the products that were previously not regulated.

The association’s Director General, Pavan Choudary, says the group will work with its member companies to ensure compliance and to streamline the transition to the new requirements.
