In a study, it was observed that there are about 50,000 different kinds of medical devices that are used in health care facilities for different kinds of functions. This fact alone has given birth to technology management, policy formulation, standardization, medication growth etc. to make sure of the availability of these instruments in the right number and in excellent quality. Thus, the National system of every country, today gives a prominent concern in the growth and development of healthcare instruments industry.

To function well, appropriate country-specific norms, standards, guidelines, information, training materials and the like, need to be developed and improved from time to time.
