New Delhi: Medical Technology Association of India (MTaI) is organizing a seminar to educate medical device professionals in the country on new ‘Medical Device Rules’ introduced in Europe, which could impact exports to that continent.

Talking about the event, Chairman and Director General of MTaI, Mr Pavan Choudary mentioned, “MTaI is committed to contributing toward skill-building of healthcare professionals in the country by providing training on various aspects of medical devices by bringing in subject matter experts. To drive the mission, MTaI has setup a Skill Building Committee, run by experts from its member companies. By doing so we align ourselves with the overall vision of the Prime Minister, Ayushman Bharat, NITI Aayog, and the agenda of DoP, MoHFW, CDSCO and DIPP.”

As per the organizers, MTaI Medical Packaging Seminar, being organized on July 16, 2018 in New Delhi, is the first such event on medical packaging in India. MTaI is conducting the event in association with its member company DuPont. This is the first of several programmes that MTaI has planned under the aegis of Skill Building Committee.

Healthcare packaging is a highly technical and scientific field, which demands professionals to stay educated and well informed. Preserving the integrity of state of the art medical devices requires packaging professionals to keep abreast of ever changing regulations, innovations in materials, testing requirements etc.
