EU call for experts: Medical Device Regulation

Sehr geehrte DeGIR-Mitglieder,
 
die Medical Device Regulation, die derzeit in nationales Recht umgesetzt wird, wird gravierende Einschränkungen beim Inverkehrbringen von neuen, innovativen Medizinprodukten mit sich bringen. Die EU-Kommission sucht derzeit nach Experten für Beratungsgremien, die die Einführung der Medical Device Regulation begleiten. Der DeGIR-Vorstand unterstützt den Aufruf der CIRSE an die Mitgliedsorganisationen, sich an dem Bewerbungsprozess zu beteiligen. Informationen zur Bewerbung finden Sie in der unten im Aufruf der CIRSE und im Dokument der EU-Kommission.
 
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
 
Ihr
DeGIR-Vorstand
