The Issue: A Potential for Exposure 

The primary regulatory concern with Used Medical Devices (UMDs) is the potential for exposure to an infectious substance (a disease-causing agent). Consequently, failure to comply with the regulations as set forth by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Authority) and IATA (International Air Transport Association) can result in civil or criminal penalties.

The Challenge: Reducing Risk & Liability of Exposure 

Used Medical Devices may contain Biological residue.

  • Shipments of UMDSs within the U.S. are subject to the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) regulations, found in 49 CFR, part 173.134.
  • Medical Devices that fail or are returned are the responsibility of the manufacturer.
  • Human error is the greatest cause of hazardous materials incidents.
  • Failure to comply with IATA regulations may result in civil or criminal penalties.
