State of Standards in India
Attached, see how oxymeters of the same make show different readings. I bet u its the case with digital thermometers, BP machines and many other devices.
Is BIS responsible for such gross errors? Who is approving them
Before they sell?
What if people look at this oxymeter and get themselves into a hospital or next line of treatment.
If BIS hasnt approved this device for sale in India who has ? Or is it selljng because some smart online seller imported from china and is listing it for sale on ecommerce platforms?
Where does the accountability lie??!! more
My own view is all regulatory bodies in our country are not carrying out their functions properly, lack accountability and many of them if not all are mired in corruption. When heads of such organizations like CBI are themselves charged for protecting corrupt individuals, who is there to investigate? more

As I said yesterday these are to be regulated under Medical Devices Rules 2017 but enforcement is still a year away. more
Medical devices are to be regulated. By law. By CDSCO. But only notified devices ate regilated. All devices would come under regulation earliest in Oct 2021. Until then its free for all. BIS only has a voluntary certification scheme. more
