Package Testing Firm, DDL Inc, Launches New “Industry Standards Alert” Service at MD&M Minneapolis

DDL helps engineers & manufacturers stay up-to-date with requirements for package testing and validation via its new “Industry Standards Alert” service.

Minneapolis, MN, October 17, 2006 --(PR.com)-- http://www.testedandproven.com – DDL, a leading package testing services firm specializing in medical device package testing, has launched a brand new “Industry Standards Alert” service to help package engineers and manufacturers keep up-to-date on changing industry requirements.

DDL has been heavily involved in the revision of several industry standards. COO, Patrick Nolan, is part of the Task Group that developed the revised Technical Information Report (TIR) for the new ISO 11607-01 standard.

“DDL believes that it is really important for packaging professionals to be aware of revisions to all industry standards, including ISO 11607,” said Nolan. "Understanding potential changes to requirements can mean the difference between pass and fail when it comes to package validation."

John Hart, CEO of DDL Inc., will deliver a presentation on the “ISO 11607 Revisions” at the upcoming MD&M Minneapolis conference, October 24 – 26, 2006.

The presentation will discuss the changes to Clause 6, the most affected part of the standard, and how manufacturers and packaging professionals can prepare themselves for a package validation under ISO 11607-01.

“What many medical device manufacturers do not understand is that the revisions to ISO 11607 will seriously impact the requirements for their medical packaging,” said Hart. “There is new emphasis on compliance regulations for sample size, testing methods, labeling and documentation, just to name a few.”

Join John Hart at MD&M Minneapolis 2006 for “ISO 11607 Revisions – Understanding Clause 6,” October 26 at 9 a.m.
