TÜV NORD CERT provides information on the requirements of the new Medical Device Regulation in Canada

Manuela Ahlers from TÜV NORD CERT also inspired representatives of the industrial sector and official bodies in Ontario.

At events in Vancouver and Toronto, TÜV NORD CERT provided information on the requirements of the new Medical Device Regulation. The invitees included representatives of the medical devices industry and official bodies. Since 2011, the TÜV NORD company has been working with the Canadian Consulate in Düsseldorf, the Canadian association of medical technology companies (MEDEC), and the Ministry for International Trade in Ontario. And the intention for the future is to maintain and expand certification activities in Canada in the medical devices field.

“Our past events have met with a good response. We’ve laid on events in a lot of Canadian cities to present the requirements of CE marking for medical devices in the medical device directive and have used them to draw the attention of prospective customers to us,” says Manuela Ahlers, Senior Auditor and Product Manager for medical devices in the business development field.

The new Medical Device Regulation 2017/745 is now replacing the old medical devices directive. Anyone wishing to sell medical devices on the European market in the future will have to adhere to this regulation. “We’re demonstrating our expertise as a notified body in this field and hope to convince potential clients of the benefits of using us. The event met with a very good response,” says Ms Ahlers.
