A strategy to prevent counterfeiting and piracy in medical device trade is essential, European medical technology association, Eucomed, says. The association is concerned that if this issue is not tackled, there will be a real threat to the value of the CE mark and that EU R&D will be discouraged. A legal framework is necessary that allows quick and effective action to eliminate counterfeited products from the market place and the industry must support the latest initiatives that are currently being actively pursued by the European Commission in this respect, the association asserts.
