Professional delivery and installation inspection of medical devices

New medical devices are delivered and installed daily in hospitals and healthcare providers across Sweden. When it comes to larger and building-affecting equipment, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), operating room equipment and integration systems, an independent inspection of the delivery may be relevant, or even included in the requirements for the installation, to create an accurate and common basis for the start of operation, contract and warranty period.

In order to verify the requirements and obtain an unbiased, official inspection report, it may be a good idea to involve an independent third party throughout the process, with both experience and technical expertise.

From decision to final installation

Once the decision is made, either to purchase new equipment or to upgrade to newer systems, the delivery and installation process follows. Clients and suppliers initiate the process in consultation with all stakeholders, and then the project moves on to planning, installation, training and commissioning.

We spoke to Pascal Skoglund, Business Unit Manager HealthCare in our Compliance business area, about his experience with projects of this type and what to consider.

"It is important to do the right thing from the beginning and to systematically go through all the steps in the process. With experience and technical expertise, you have a good foundation. In my team, it is common for us to act as an independent inspection partner between the client and the supplier. Depending on the type of medical device to be delivered, the projects are carried out by experienced specialist consultants, in accordance with the current practice of BMU 93 (Instructions for the inspection of medical devices and installations), which contains detailed guidelines for the control and inspection of, among other things, the design, choice of materials and technical installations for medical devices affecting buildings," says Pascal.
