safety certificates for medical instruments mortezahaydari msg:4321378 11:39 pm on Jun 2, 2011 (gmt 0) does reselling medical instruments (not drugs or chemicals, or any other perishable material) require having a safety certificate? The manufacturer company should provide that certificate ordinarily. Does the reseller (retail) company need to ask for those certificates from the manufacturer company? or get something totally separate like business licenses? If something goes wrong with an instrument, who is in trouble? the manufacturer or the retailer? Thanks very much

I don't know about licences, check with the authorities in your area - however, with regards to your final question, a customer's contract is with the retailer, not the manufacturer. If there is a problem with something you sell, YOU are responsible. Find out about product liability - you can usually get insurance for most types of risk. piatkow msg:4326330 10:02 am on Jun 15, 2011 (gmt 0)
This is an international forum, you need advice on the laws in your own location which you must get from a suitably qualified professional advisor. I have seen advice on these forums which may be perfectly OK in poster's country of origin but which would be totally illegal where I live.
