Medical devices; monitoring of operators

The industrial inspectorates inspect the operation of medical-technical equipment.


It is the task of the trade supervisory authorities at the governments to ensure that neither users nor patients are endangered by the operation of medical devices.

The factory inspectorate

  • monitors the proper cleaning, disinfection and sterilization of used instruments and devices before they are used again.
  • monitors the performance of technical inspections (safety inspections) of certain "active" (powered) medical devices (e.g. mechanical respirators, magnetic resonance devices).
  • monitors the performance of metrological checks on certain medical devices with a measuring function (e.g. blood pressure measuring devices) to ensure that the measuring accuracy is within defined error limits.
  • monitors the documentation obligations of the operators, such as keeping an inventory or medical device books.
