This article was originally published in Clinica
The European Union is to undergo a significant expansion in early 2004 with 10 new members ready for accession. This casts aside plans for a staggered expansion. It will mean the single market for medical devices and diagnostics will span 28 countries as long as companies can meet labelling requirements in each of the languages of these countries. The 10 new members are expected to be Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Slovenia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia Cyprus and Malta. Romania and Bulgaria are not on the list because of failure to meet EU judiciary and civil rights standards.
