Depending on the scope, you will be informed about the results on a regular basis or after completion of the tests – you can arrange this with the test technicians if you wish.
We mark the inspected devices and systems with an inspection sticker on which you can quickly and clearly see the date of the next inspection.

Technical medical devices have become indispensable in
health facilities, where complex devices can make the difference between life and death and the well-being of patients.
Device safety, that is, proper function in accordance with
the application, is thus extremely important.
Legislation in the form of medicinal product laws (e.g., the
Medical Device Law) mandates health facilities to carry
out regular inspections at intervals of 6 to 36 months,
depending on the type of device.
The safety and the flawless function of technical medical
devices must be tested and ascertained in the form of
“technical safety inspections” on a regular basis for the
protection of patients.
