second draft of medical device regulations disappointing: industry
The new specification requires medical device manufacturers to follow labeling requirements that are different from globally recognized standards, and the product has a shorter validity period.
\"We were very disappointed and shocked!

\"The proposed regulations will legalize the pseudo-manufacturing sector, leading to the closure of domestic manufacturing and the expulsion of jobs from India,\" he added . \".
The latest regulations are seen by the domestic industry as another blow to the domestic manufacturing industry and the \"Made in India\" efforts of the medical device industry.
\"While the globally accepted standard for medical devices is a 10-year expiry date, these specifications require 5-year expiry.
This will hurt the industry a lot, \"said another source, who declined to be named.
The proposed specification will be in the public domain next month, giving the industry time to give feedback on the latest version of the notice.
The domestic medical device industry is now worried about the future viability of the domestic manufacturing industry, unless some
The mandatory terms are not revoked or corrected.
\"India\'s manufacturing sector is falling, and there is no bigger example than medical devices.
Earlier, simple equipment such as thermometers, audiologists and hot water bottles made in India had been outsourced to China.
