The UK MHRA is seeking the views of healthcare professionals, patients, industry, academics, and the interested public on the draft new European legislation on medical devices.


In September the European Commission published what it thinks the new legislation on medical devices should look like. The Member States of the European Union and the European Parliament will now negotiate and agree on the final legislation.


This public consultation sets out what we think about the different changes suggested by the European Commission. We would now like to hear your opinion on how the new legislation will have an impact on you and how you think that it can be improved.


The consultation is available for download in PDF format.


Please respond by 21 January 2013 to
