European industry presented its regulatory wish list to DG Enterprise Commissioner Erkki Liikanen last week in Brussels. In what was a landmark meeting, representatives from Guidant, ISOTIS, Impella, ELA Medical and Siemens Medical joined EUCOMED director-general Michael Baker, EDMA president Professor Uwe Bicker and a representative from COCIR in what was anticipated to be a valuable first exchange of views on a broad range of subjects. The needs for separate regulation from pharma, an appropriate regulatory framework and favourable single market conditions for SMEs were among the agenda points. More details in next week's Clinica.
