Members of the European Diagnostics Manufacturers Association (EDMA) and of the European Medical Technology Industry (Eucomed), have approved a new and common MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice at their General Assemblies held on 2 December in Brussels, in a continuous effort to set high ethical standards for the medical technology industry across Europe.
Brussels, 6 October 2015 – Ahead of the upcoming trilogue, MedTech Europe, the alliance of Eucomed and EDMA, is calling on policy makers to ensure that every proposed measure consistently meets the two overarching objectives of the regulations, namely to increase patient safety and to stimulate innovation in medical technology in Europe.
MedTech Europe, the alliance of Eucomed and EDMA, welcomes the fact that the Council has opted to move forward with its proposal. At the same time, MedTech Europe notes that Council also recognises a number of areas that still raise concern and thus warrant further work.
Brussels, 11 March 2014 - In 2013, Eucomed responded to the Siemens Integrity Initiative by presenting a project that proposed to extend the scope of the Conference Vetting System (CVS), to the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region. On 23 February 2015 Eucomed’s application was accepted and Eucomed received a fund of 846.000 USD over a period of three years to set up the project.
Eucomed today announces the election to its Board of Directors of Diogo Moreira-Rato, Group President, Europe and Canada, Smith & Nephew; Dr Riad Sherif, Area President EMEA, Alcon; and Assobiomedica, the Italian medical technology industry association, represented by Gabriele Mazzoletti. The new Board members were elected to fill positions vacated by Stéphane Thiroloix, former President Advanced Surgical Devices Europe, Smith & Nephew; Miguel Bernabeu, Head Market Access Eurmea, Alcon; and Danish medical technology industry association Medicoindustrien, represented by Louise Feilberg Levy.
