MedTech Europe welcomes the adoption of the opinion by the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee on the AI Act
Posted on 19.09.2022
MedTech Europe welcomes the adoption of the opinion by the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee, which sends a strong message to the leading European Parliament Committees for Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) as well as Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) on the need for context-based human oversight, which is particularly relevant in the healthcare sector. MedTech Europe also recognizes further progress in the following areas on the European AI Board (EAIB) as well as AI literacy and user focus.
We call on policymakers to address these concerns to provide a clear and consistent legal framework for AI-enabled medical technologies that ensure their continued availability for patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare systems. MedTech Europe will continue following the ongoing technical meetings and negotiations between the European Parliament’s IMCO-LIBE Committees and the progress in the above areas.
