In modern times almost everybody needs medical attention some time or the other. If you have to under go any kind of operation apart from the surgeon you should be confident about the instruments that he is going to use. The confidence comes from the fact that the instruments used are of a very good quality.
World over the quality consciousness has increased.
The International Standards Organization or the ISO
is one such organization which has specifications
about the quality of the surgical instruments.
Bureau of Indian Standards or BIS has also set up standards for surgical instruments. Medical Equipment and Hospital Planning Division Council (MHDC) is responsible for the standardization of all types of surgical instruments.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) also has standards for surgical instruments. So does the British. In short all over the world there are standards maintained for the surgical instruments and most of the manufacturers abide by the rules as the end user the patient might be his kin.
