Key efforts were also recently developed to cover some key elements linked to RoHS Directive which will be this year deployed through Europe and which will cover affect medical devices. We continue to monitor developments of discussions on Medical Device Regulation at Council level and provide elements for specific matters for consideration by EU institutions.
To come is the IMDRF in San Francisco on 25-27 March. Those meetings will provide an opportunity for DITTA to contribute to regulators’ efforts to harmonize the regulatory framework at global level for medical devices. These meetings will be this year under the US FDA leadership.
We are looking forward to a positive second Quarter for all our members and our partners.
