New medtech-related standards could become law in Spain. They feature in proposed legislation governing healthcare services related to the health and safety of workers. A draft royal decree presented to parliament yesterday contains far-reaching proposals, ranging from tighter health surveillance regimes to standards for the provision of these medical services and the quality of the medical – as well as safety – equipment that must be provided. The draft law also proposes that regional health authorities be given the responsibility of overseeing these activities and ensuring they meet the new standards.
