French draft legislation to set up special centres for regulating the use of innovative new medical technology has been delayed. The French Assembly was due to start its first reading of the draft law on June 26, but had to postpone it because of other business. The French medical device industry association, SNITEM, is now lobbying the government to modify Article 32 of the Social Security Finance Law for 2000 to speed up the introduction of innovative products onto the French market.
