Press release - Health MEPs call for stricter controls on medical devices - Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Stricter monitoring, stronger certification bodies, better traceability: following several recent scandals like the PIP breast implant and the hip "metal on metal", health MEPs amended draft legislation in order to better protect patients on Wednesday. They also introduced stricter rules on informed consent and ethics in a separate law on in vitro diagnostic medical devices, used for example for HIV and DNA testing.
