The Hamburg Institute of International Economics forecasts that by 2020 the demand for medical devices will have increased by an annual 4 % in the USA and Western Europe, by 8 % in Eastern Europe and by more than 10 % in China and India. However, this fast-growing market lacks skilled specialists. Manufacturers of medical devices wishing to place their products on the market must overcome particularly high obstacles. Approval procedures are complex and differ significantly across non-EU markets. In particular, there is a scarcity of specialists with the ability to help new medical devices to navigate the jungle of very diverse international approval procedures.
TÜV SÜD Academy provides support, offering modular qualifications and seminars. All seminars are offered individually or as intensive seminars – on request, also as in-house training. Our Programme also covers further topics related to medical devices.
