Go Deeper to Meet Your Requirements

For medical device manufacturers, compliance requires industry-specific knowledge of regulations and the ability to communicate large volumes of data deep into supply chains. This requires that manufacturers spend significant time and resources scoping products, contacting suppliers, and managing their data.

Is your company ready to meet its many requirements?

Risks in the Medical Device Supply Chain

With industry-specific requirements — such as under the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) or Labour Standards Assurance System (LSAS) — medical device manufacturers have a number of regulations to meet in order to gain and maintain market access.

Designing parts proactively, with the help of accurate data from deep in the supply chain and industry-leading expertise, saves time and money and keeps manufacturers ahead of risks.

Meeting Customers’ Expectations

Medical device manufacturers typically sign lucrative contracts that assume lasting market access. Disruptions or outright loss of access can cause lasting financial and reputational harm. Additionally, class action lawsuits and recalls are an ever-present threat, requiring deep reporting to defend against.
