"I support the right of reusable medical device owners to choose who services their equipment. If manufacturing rules are applied to service companies, then manufacturers should make their knowledge and parts available service providers to ensure a level playing field. Without evidence of a problem, there is no case for the FDA to impose new rules on device service companies. I am concerned repairs will cost more; take longer to complete; and be accompanied by poor customer service. I am also concerned that manufacturers will use their control of repairs to force upgrades to their older equipment."
