European Commission Urges for Stronger Collaboration with the US on Medical Device Regulations

The proposal for more collaboration between the US and the EU on the regulation of medical devices has been put forward as part of the 14th round of ongoing negotiations of the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP). One of the key aims of the proposal is to prevent the duplication of work such as the inspection of manufacturing sites or duplications in data submissions.

This proposal follows after a similar annex for collaboration in pharmaceutical regulation was put forward at the end of May this year.
