Rapid progress on MDD (Medical Devices Directive) review at Council and Parliament levels

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Swift progress is already being made at the European Council on discussions on the proposed review of the Medical Devices Directive. A meeting, scheduled for February 20, will allow the Council to complete its first preliminary review of the text, before a second round of discussions is launched. This review at the Council is allowing major issues to be identified where there is not full agreement. It gives the EU presidency, currently held by Austria, as well as expert working groups or committees that have been set up by member states on particular subjects, an opportunity to contribute to the debate. The Commission can also propose some redrafting where necessary. In parallel, there have also been developments at the European Parliament. The EP has decided is to consult the European Economics and Social Committee (Ecosoc) over the text. And Ecosoc has appointed Paolo Braghin, of Italian industry association Confindustria, as rapporteur.
