Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety testing services, announced that they have increased capacity for testing medical equipment to IEC 60601-1, 3rd Edition in order to support manufacturers in meeting the June 1, 2012 adoption deadline for Canada and Europe. Intertek urges manufacturers to schedule testing as soon as possible to secure lab availability and avoid possible delays in getting products to market.
Intertek offers extensive transition services to navigate the 3rd Edition, including Risk Management File (RMF) Reviews, Product Design Reviews, and Risk Management Systems Auditing and Certification. For further guidance, device manufacturers are invited to attend one of Intertek’s 3rd Edition Training Seminars scheduled throughout February, March and April at several of our North America facilities.
From education to certification, Intertek partners with manufacturers to simplify the challenges associated with delivering a new or updated device to global markets within this evolving regulatory environment. As with any other standard change, a failure to implement new requirements in a timely manner could cause costly delays in getting a device to market. Intertek maintains the capacity, capabilities and expertise to manage your transition.
