The new guidelines for import and manufacture of medical devices notified by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare would affect the medical devices manufacturing sector in Indian, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) said. Chairman of its Medical Equipment Division, Alok Mishra said though there is a need for regulation as all medical devices undergo stringent quality norms globally, the Centre must first establish the required infrastructure to undertake product testing, certification and quality evaluation to ensure quality of imports.
