Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee quick links:






Thank you for visiting the Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee (MDPTC) website and for your interest in our committee.


The MDPTC consists of over 300 members representing the medical device packaging industry from many disciplines including material manufactures, material converters, device manufacturers, educational institutions, package testing facilities and test equipment and medical packaging equipment manufacturers.


Our goal is to provide a forum to discuss a wide range of topics that concern the medical device packaging industry and to support a framework of task groups to act upon specific issues and concerns identified by the MDPTC. Our website has pages which will give you our mission and vision statements and discusses the scope of the MDPTC.

The committee has currently identified six subcommittees. They are:

  • Sterilization and Packaging Materials
  • Labeling
  • Sustainability
  • Temperature Controlled Packaging
  • Education
  • Packaging Technical Operations

In addition, we have formed an Industry Standards and Regulatory Activities liaison activity which is designed to keep committee members abreast of the latest developments in these areas.

For more specific information about these Task Groups and the Liaison Activity, visit the web pages assigned to these areas. Also, the Past Meeting Minutes web page will give you more insights regarding the establishment of these groups as well as other important information regarding the MDPTC. Please visit the membership page for information regarding joining IoPP and the MDCTP.

If you have any further questions or comments, please contact us. Thank you again for your interest in the MDPTC.
