    Indian Biomedical Skill Council

    About 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.

    Several professional bodies, academic institutions of clinical merit and engineering

    excellence, quality assessment agencies and training partners has become a

    member of the council. The council partners will not carry any legal or commercial

    responsibility with regards to their membership of the council and the partnership

    shall be renewal once every year as well as compensated for their contribution as

    per IBSC program guidelines.

    Societal Benefits of IBSC

    1) Health care industry is one of the major sources of economy to our nation, this

    industry needs well trained and skilled engineers particularly in Medical Devices

    areas. Most of the health care industry is dependent on medical devices and

    diagnostic equipment’s for diagnosis, treatment and etc., However, like doctors,

    nurses, pharmacists and lab technicians, healthcare industry required well

    trained and skilled biomedical engineers. This benefits hospitals, patients and

    stakeholders and etc.,

    2) The main outline of IBSC is to develop skill programs in the areas of Medical

    Devices and related areas that full fill the required manpower to hospitals,

    medical equipment companies and manufacturing industries and etc.,

    3) The IBSC will certify the trained engineers, this impacts the health care industry

    at large scale. Only certified engineers will be recruited in Clinics / Hospitals /

    industries or other related areas where they are already trained and skilled in

    their domains so from the date of joining job, they are able to start working

    effectively. Hence, employers no need to focus on training to newly recruited

    employees at any levels, this saves lot of money and time for them.

    4) Manufactures / industries will be benefited by Skill Certification where they can

    easily find skilled manpower who trained as per their requirements.

    Biomedical Engineering in India

    Biomedical Engineering profession is part of Healthcare Industry and expecting

    quality practice from BME Engineers / Technicians. In India more than 2 lakh

    Biomedical Engineers / Technicians working in Hospital / Clinical Laboratories /

    Company / Organization and etc., However, there is no such apex body to certify

    competency skills of these Engineers.

    Estimated No. of working professionals In Biomedical Engineering Field

    The Indian Biomedical Skill Council (IBSC) Certifies Indian & International

    Biomedical Engineers. The Certified Biomedical Engineers will be highly preferred to

    practice profession in biomedical field and also gets equivalence certification to work

    in abroad. Initially more than 2 lakhs Biomedical Engineers from India will be

    benefited by this proposal and expecting 6,500 or more fresh graduates will use this

    platform every year. Those who graduated from non-BME background and working

    in BME field are also eligible for this certification.
