Posted on: 19/03/2020

The government is looking for businesses who can support in the supply of ventilators and ventilator components across the UK

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is looking for organisations who can support in the supply of ventilators and ventilator components across the United Kingdom as part of the government’s response to Covid-19.

To help manage the responses, BEIS has set up a simple online form to capture basic details, supply chain experience and business capabilities.  The questions aim to identify the suitability and readiness of organisations to be involved in the initiative.

As well as manufacturers, the government is looking for businesses with the following skills:

  • design/specification
  • rapid prototyping
  • contract/product assembly
  • certification/regulation/testing
  • logistics
  • medical training

 

As of 21st March, the government has issued a minimally clinically acceptable ventilator specification: please click here for further information.
