During a recent trip to Canada to deal with cosmetic issues, he also talked in general terms with the Canadian authorities about the principles of ongoing co-operation between the two markets, and the importance the EU attaches to this collaboration. The meeting also provided an opportunity to touch on issues concerning the global medical device vigilance system; Canada provides the secretariat for this system, while the EU currently holds the presidency of the EU Global Harmonisation Task Force.
