Case Study: Inspection Programme to ensure the safety of medical devices

Inspection Programme to ensure the safety of medical devices

An inspection body sub-program for medical electrical equipment and systems has been adopted in Canada to support Health Authorities and to protect the safety of Canadian health workers and patients when exposed to devices like CT scanners, ultrasound machines, defibrillators and X-ray equipment. This program accredits inspection bodies to provide certification to SPE-3000 Model code for the field evaluation of medical electrical equipment and systems in relation to safety from electrical shock and fire and mechanical hazards.
