COCIR Contribution to the European Parliament discussions on the Medical Devices regulation


COCIR represents the European Medical Diagnostic and Imaging, Electromedical and Healthcare IT Industry. This is a sector of medical technology with a long history of innovative development and manufacture in Europe. Our Industry has always supported strong and effective regulation in its sector and taken a very active role supporting the harmonized development of regulations at national, European and global level.
On the 26 February 2013, the European Parliament organized a Workshop on the regulation on medical devices chaired by the Rapporteur Dagmar Roth-Behrendt (S&D, DE)1. During this workshop, Ms Roth-Behrendt MEP asked each of the panelists a series of questions. In this paper COCIR wishes to provide its opinion on the basis of the questions raised in the first and third panels.
