ABHI Commentary 

"We welcome DEKRA’s certification journey, which will provide much needed capacity to the system. We are also delighted that DEKRA have joined the ABHI membership this month – it is important that in addition to the manufacturers that make up our vibrant HealthTech sector, our membership should also encompasses those stakeholders like DEKRA who have a vital role to play in supporting innovators.”
