Medical equipment such as pulmonary ventilators and the accessories they come with are essential for helping patients who have respiratory problems, like trouble breathing. Indian Technical Standard MDW4 describes the manufacturing and quality requirements for these life-saving medical devices in India.
These specifications guarantee that these products are designed, produced, and evaluated in compliance with accepted quality standards. This entails making certain of their functionality, security, and adherence to Indian medical equipment regulations.
Note: Manufacturers of pulmonary ventilators and accessories must have the EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR authorization is a requirement for manufacturers of pulmonary ventilators and related accessories, indicating that responsible waste management and recycling are top priorities. By doing this, they guarantee the appropriate management of their products throughout their lifecycle, so actively contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally conscientious healthcare industry.
An essential program to handle the expanding problem of managing electronic trash, or "e-waste," is called EPRA, or Extended Producer's Responsibility Authorization. Securing EPR authorization from the State Pollution Control Boards (SPCBs) and receiving the EPR Registration Certificate from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) are the two steps in the process of obtaining EPR authorization. With the help of EPRA, manufacturers and importers of electronic goods will take over management of e-waste from consumers and local governments. Electronics importers and manufacturers are obligated by EPRA to assume full responsibility for the whole lifecycle of their products, from manufacturing to disposal. Establishing and financing collection networks, recycling centers, and appropriate e-waste disposal techniques are all part of this.
