COCIR welcomes new EU medical device regulation

The European Coordination Committee of the Radiological, Electromedical, and Healthcare IT Industry (COCIR) has praised the European Commission for adopting a new medical device regulation that will now be considered by the European Parliament and European Union member states.

The new regulation could significantly improve the efficiency of the EU regulatory framework for medical devices across Europe and bring new products to clinical use faster, according to COCIR.

"It is crucial for the benefit of European citizens to accelerate the uptake of innovative medical technology for the sustainability of healthcare systems across Europe, since we currently have an aging population, a rise of chronic diseases, scarce healthcare workforce, and an uncertain economic outlook," COCIR President Kevin Haydon said in a statement.
