The head of the Department of Production Supervision and Quality Control of the Iran National Medical Device Directorate announced the proposed list of priorities for the production of medical devices and raw materials. The ostomy bags as one of the important products in the field of wound and ostomy care can be seen in this list.
According to the Public Relations of the Iran National Medical Device Directorate, Jamal Tavali, Head of the Department of Supervision of Production and Quality Control, said: The previous years’ importing data and the amount of production are published to inform those interested in working in this field.
“It should be noted that this list is being reviewed and will be informed after possible changes are made.” He added.
It seems that one of the main reasons for placing the ostomy bag in the proposed list of production priority announced by the Iran National Medical Device Directorate is the shortage of this product in the ostomy care market of Iran. Another goal is to reduce dependence on foreign ostomy care products and to import this product.
