The quality of imported medical equipment varies from good to bad, and the relevant department issues a claim certificate

The quality of medical equipment is directly related to the life and health of patients. On March 20, 2019, the quality of medical device products imported from Guangdong Province varied from good to bad. In 2019, the province inspected a total of 1.5 million US dollars worth of unqualified imported medical devices.
In recent years, the import of medical devices in our province has shown an upward trend year by year. In 2019, the Guangdong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau inspected 168 batches of imported medical devices at a total value of 20.969 million U.S. dollars. The value of the inspected goods increased by 679 million U.S. dollars over the previous year, an increase of 47.9. %. Generally speaking, the quality and safety, health, and environmental protection of imported medical equipment are relatively stable, but there are still many problems, mainly: some large-scale equipment, such as medical linear accelerators, radiotherapy planning systems, nuclear magnetic resonance, color ultrasound and other products There is no Chinese in the operation interface and no warning signs in Chinese; some power plugs do not meet the mandatory technical specification requirements of China's national standards; some small medical devices have other problems, such as the graphics, symbols, and abbreviations of the label or logo do not meet the requirements of the national standard. There is no CCC logo, etc.; some of the quantity of goods does not match the contract, and there is a shortage
The entry-exit inspection and quarantine department reminds relevant users that after importing medical devices, they must apply for inspection and quarantine in a timely manner. The inspection and quarantine department will issue a claim certificate for unqualified imported medical devices that are inspected to protect the health of consumers and the legitimate rights and interests of the user.
