Medical Supplies & Devices/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions regarding medical device product safety and EMC requirements, and product device certification requirements. I do not have legal expertise with respect to the local state and national laws and regulations that must be met to start up a medical supply distribution business.

Experience in the area

I have been involved in assessing Medical Devices to Canadian, US and European Requirements. I also have significant experience with respect to regulatory approvals on many other types of electronics devices.
