Robert Burek, technical expert on E&E medical device testing at SGS Consumer Testing Services, held a presentation at the International Medical Standards Update seminar, hosted by the International Trade Assistance Center (ITAC) and the Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network (MAGNET) on March 24, 2011 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The seminar was designed to help executive level management, engineering professionals, compliance executives, legal departments, and environmental and medical professionals better understand and comply with recent changes to directives on medical device safety. These changes will alter testing strategies for many device manufacturers. The presentation at the all-day event included discussions on: The IEC 60601-1 3rd Edition standard governing medical device electrical safety; and Risk management under the updated CB Scheme for international conformity testing and certification of electrical equipment.

Robert Burek is an assessor for the IECEE CB Scheme and a member of the IECEE Expert Task Forces for medical, laboratory, audio and information technology equipment. The seminar was organized by the Northeast Ohio Trade and Economic Consortium.
