ECM and KTC Partnership: an international synergy for the Medical Devices sector

21 June 2024

ECM and KTC strengthen their collaboration in the medical devices sector to ensure the highest international standards in testing and conformity verification activities.

At the Ente Certificazione Macchine headquarters in Valsamoggia, we recently hosted our colleagues from ECM Korea and a delegation from our prestigious partner KTC – Korea Testing Certification Institute, from South Korea. On this special occasion, we focused on technical training regarding the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), accompanied by strategic discussions to enhance our collaboration.

After a warm welcome to the delegation from ECM Korea and our partner KTC, the morning was dedicated to a detailed training on the EU certification process and ECM’s Quality Management System, led by our Medical Devices Division experts, Giacomo Golfieri – Quality Assurance Manager, and Vanessa Biavati – Technical Manager.

We then dedicated the afternoon to discussions on business cooperation and the medical devices fair, that will be held in South Korea in 2025. The day concluded with a Q&A session on the MDR, providing further clarifications and regulatory insights.

This event is just the latest in a series of meetings held between Italy and South Korea following the signing of the memorandum of understanding between ECM and KTC in September 2023.

“The day we just spent together represented a significant opportunity to strengthen our international relationships and exchange essential knowledge in the sector,” explains Luca Bedonni, CEO of ECM. “We now look forward to further opportunities for learning and collaboration, consolidating ECM and KTC’s position as leaders in certification and compliance activities at international level.”
