Advocacy activities related to MD and IVD Regulations

Posted on 03.11.2015

Trilogue discussions continued to take place on the Medical Devices (MD) and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices (IVD) Regulations with the involvement of the Luxembourg presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament and the European Commission behind closed doors during the course of November.

No firm compromise has been reached yet, and the discussions will continue under the Dutch Presidency, as of 1 January 2016. 

Finally, the revisions of the Medical Devices and In-Vitro Diagnostics Directives will not be tackled at EPSCO meeting (Council of Ministers responsible for employment, social affairs, health and consumer policy) of 8 December 2015.

MedTech Europe will continue to follow the evolution of the files and to advocate its position on both dossiers.
