Indian Biomedical Skill Council (IBSC)

Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone (AMTZ), Association of Indian Medical Manufacturers of Medical Devices (AiMeD) and National Accreditation Board for Certification Bodies (NABCB) under the Quality Council of India (QCI) have jointly established “Indian Biomedical Skill Council (IBSC)” to provide certification system for Biomedical Engineers in the country who serve as the backbone of the healthcare services. 

 

IBSC aims at strengthening the Biomedical Skill Sector in the country and with this objective develop job roles and approved by National Skill Qualification Committee (NSQC) under Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE).  

 

 

IBSC also signed an MoU with Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) USA for International recognition & equivalence of IBSC Certified professionals. This MoU benefits to the IBSC certified candidates will have equal opportunities to practice biomedical profession globally.
