- 26th April 2013Looking ahead: assessing the revision of EU medical devices legislation
The keenly anticipated revision of the EU medical devices legislation is perhaps one of the most controversial, technical and topical pieces of health legislation to be discussed in Brussels in recent years. Medical devices cover a wide range of products, from simple bandages to the most sophisticated life-supporting products. These devices play a crucial role in the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, and treatment of diseases and in the improvement of the quality of life of people suffering from disabilities. Innovation in this particularly dynamic sector is considered fundamental to ensuring access to quality and cost-efficient healthcare. The new regulatory framework will undoubtedly affect the ability and capacity of the medical device industry to deliver this. It will also impact upon national public authorities, the healthcare community and patients by ensuring access to safe and high-quality devices across the EU through robust surveillance, assessment and monitoring mechanisms.
