Study on the medical devices sector

One of the conclusions of the Review Report elaborated by the MDEG is that consistent and up-to-date data on the medical devices sector at European level are not available. The Commission therefore announced in its Communication on Medical Devices of July 2, 2003 COM 2003/0386 a study to be carried out, updating - inter alia - a study performed for the Commission by LEK in 1996 .

The study was carried out by the University of Siena/Firenze (EPRIS , CERM ), and was monitored by a Steering Group composed of representatives of Commission services, national authorities and European industry.
