FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Remanufacturing and Discussion Paper Seeking Feedback on Cybersecurity Servicing of Medical Devices

With this in mind, the FDA is issuing today's draft guidance to help clarify whether activities performed on medical devices are likely remanufacturing as well as a discussion paper on cybersecurity servicing of devices.

INTEGRA Biosciences has made significant progress towards its goal of minimizing its ecological footprint with the installation of new photovoltaic systems at the company’s US facilities in Hudson, NH.

These systems will provide 77 percent of the total energy requirement for both the company’s US headquarters and production center, saving as much CO2 as 2900 cars or 2300 single-family homes produce in the USA each year.

INTEGRA first introduced photovoltaic systems at its global headquarters in Zizers, Switzerland, in 2019. Combined with extensive use of Swiss hydropower, this ensures that the Zizers site – including heating and cooling – is run entirely with renewable energy.

Expanding this approach to its US facilities, INTEGRA has now completed the installation of almost 1500 panels with double-sided solar cells on the roofs of its two buildings in Hudson. Capable of producing 817,000 kWh per year, they are expected to produce more than 19 million kWh over their service life.

This latest step is part of the company’s overall commitment to sustainability, which also includes, promoting the recycling of single-use consumables, encouraging employees to use sustainable forms of transport wherever possible, and using sustainable energy supplies.

Ursula Leuthold, INTEGRA’s dedicated sustainability coordinator, commented: “We constantly review our processes to make them more environmentally friendly. By commissioning these new solar power systems in the USA, we have now reached our next important milestone towards sustainability.”
