At the open forum for the persons concerned within the working frame of IMDRF Ivan Ozhgikhin presented report titled “Access of medical products to world markets: perspective of Russian manufacturer”.

At the moment, we are supplying medical equipment to 95 countries. Cooperation with associations taking part in work of the Forum contributes to export promotion. Presently one of topical and important issues for any country’s export activity is medical equipment registration. This is first of all, quality, safety and efficiency guarantee, but due to fact that Russian manufacturer has to undergo this procedure twice, according to national and international standards, the process of project completion slows down. This is the reason why work conducted during the Conference is vital for Russian manufacturers, - the more knowledge we gain on requirements and nuances of work in other countries, the easier for us will be entering these markets”, - Ivan Ozhgikhin noted.

Among the exhibits, the holding presented synchronised defibrillator-monitor DFR-02, neonatal infrared heater “Radiant Heat BONO”, a complex for automated estimation of functional condition of cardiovascular system “Cardiometer - MT” and other medical equipment.
