Fair competition for SMEs – Letter to DG SANTE

Following the application of the new organisation of the European Commission’s DG SANTE, EUCOPE took the opportunity to send a letter to Ms Anna-Eva Ampelas, recently appointed as Head of Unit B6 on Medical Devices, to outline our concerns on the implementation status of the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR – 2017/745) and In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR – 2017/746). The document stressed the importance to ensure a level-playing field for small and medium-sized companies when both texts will come into practice.
