What is ISO 10993

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and international regulatory bodies alike (China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), EU Notified Bodies, etc.), call for medical devices to be tested in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 10993 guidelines which determine the product’s potential toxicity.

Our consulting process starts out with a comprehensive risk assessment to determine which of these tests need to be performed on your unique product. We offer this service for free if you continue in partnership with our team for the recommended testing protocols. From our experience this assessment is a vital step in your product’s innovation pathway and will save your company time and money.
