Data Act & amended rules on the legal protection of databases – the view from MedTech Europe

MedTech Europe welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the proposed Data Act and amended rules on the legal protection of databases, published on 23 February 2022.

As indicated in our initial statement, MedTech Europe shares the Commission’s overarching objective to address barriers for the safe and secure sharing of data in the EU and leveraging the economic and societal potential of data. We call on EU legislators to support a data-driven economy that harnesses the power of data to advance and accelerate research and innovation in medical technologies and services for the benefit of European citizens, while preserving incentives for industry to invest in data innovation and protect citizens’ rights and interests.

The medical technology industry is committed to doing its part by delivering medical devices that produce meaningful data available to healthcare professionals and patients to further improve patient outcomes whilst upholding the highest patient safety standards.
