How we develop high-quality products and minimise our environmental footprint

Learn about the steps leading up to delivering a catheter to you.

Coloplast sets the standards

Coloplast was the first to launch the ready-to-use catheter, the first with compact catheters and the first with a compact integrated bag solution. The SpeediCath® catheters have been setting the standard of catheters for 15 years

Many have told us that discretion, security and convenience are very important features when you need to catheterise. To accommodate this, we’ve made products that don’t necessarily look like medical devices.

Living up to international standards

Our products are subject to tough quality requirements, in order to make sure that they follow key international legislation and standards. We also document the safety of our products through several testing methods.


Throughout the development process, products are thoroughly tested before being sent to market.

Quality in all details

Coloplast has a very comprehensive set-up to control that our products are of consistent high quality. We systematically collect information about quality issues and feed this into our development and research processes.

Safety comes first

In our product information and on our website, we describe how Coloplast products should be used and how they can best help improve quality of life.

We minimise our environmental footprint

We are committed to reducing CO2 emissions.

We are committed to reducing CO2 emissions. To achieve this we are considering smarter packaging, improved transportation, minimising our use of raw materials as well reducing waste and recycling waste.

Being a company that produces plastics, we’re very conscious of our waste generation. Our main focus is to use less raw materials. We also take steps to recycle the waste we generate. When it comes to disposal, our products are usually contaminated after use, so we don’t recommend recycling them due to the risk of infection. However, we have designed most of our product packaging so that it can be recycled. Reducing our carbon footprint is important to us- that’s why we are mindful of the chemicals we use in our products.
