The Indian medical device and pharma manufacturers are striving hard to grow their product portfolios for the lucrative but difficult to penetrate mature markets like U.S., Europe and Japan. One of the key challenges is difficulty in complying with regulations and expectations of regulators of these markets.

To overcome this challenge, a few medical device and pharma manufacturers have partnered with medical, diagnostic and drug delivery device contract manufacturers that have the systems, resources, execution capability and proven track record of meeting both quality and regulatory requirements of mature markets. The key requirements of such contract manufacturers are as follows:

  • Robust quality management system, certifications and registrations that will comply with regulations of mature markets

  • Highly skilled and well-trained resource base
