European Commission offers transparency over MDD (Medical Devices Directive) review:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The European Commission will soon be posting the text of the five-year review of the Medical Devices Directive (MDD) on its website. The document will not appear on the medical device sector's website, but rather on a Commission website that publicises all documents that are being processed, once they are nearly finalised. This gives interested parties an opportunity to comment, although it is not quite certain to what extent the Commission has to take such comments into account. The review text will be published once it has received clearance, due imminently, from director and cabinet level within Directorate General Enterprise and Industry. It will then be launched for interservice consultation, giving interested directorates within the Commission an opportunity to make comments about the document.
