Tackling counterfeit medical devices is high on the agenda of the EU's medical device competent authorities, it has emerged. Further details, just published by UK Medicines and healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) concerning its hosting of the 16th meeting of competent authorities for medical devices, reveal that one key priority is to look at ways of tackling counterfeit medical devices. This follows the recent close liaison between the UK and Ireland concerning counterfeit condoms and the use of the internet to sell devices direct to the public. The meeting was held in London on September 22-23.
