The London-based medical device regulatory consultancy Quality First International (QFI) launches a new programme intended to assist medical device manufacturers in the development of environment-friendly, eco-designed and green medical devices.
“We think it is high time that sustainability and eco-friendliness become topics of discussion in the industry”, says QFI’s CEO and Technical Director Haroon Atchia. “State-of-the-art technology and a value-oriented business culture should go hand in hand nowadays. Our programme can assist value-driven medical device manufacturers to achieve optimally environment-friendly medical devices and to gain leadership through continual improvement of business processes towards environmental sustainability. Our ideas and initiative are fundamental, visionary and innovative, not simply management system-based. Our goal is a certified environment-friendly medical device sector.”
