EU Commission wants to exclude devices from SRM (specified risk material) ban
This article was originally published in Clinica
The European Commission is proposing that medical devices remain excluded from the forthcoming Commission Decision that will ban the use of specified risk materials (SRMs) from animals. It is arguing that devices should not be included on the grounds that risk is already minimised by sector-specific requirements. The Commission also wishes to ensure that they are excluded from coverage under the European Regulation on transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), currently being developed.
