Background

The Council debates on two draft regulations on medical devices and on
in vitro diagnostic medical devices on the basis of a progress report from the
Lithuanian presidency. The two proposals provide for a revision of the current EU rules on medical devices. The objective is to overcome certain flaws and gaps, such as a divergent interpretation and application of the rules, while further strengthening patient safety and dissuading fraud.
Medical devices cover a broad range of products such as corrective glasses, dental filling material, X-ray machines, heart valves and breast implants. In vitro diagnostic medical devices are products such as blood tests used for disease prevention, diagnosis, monitoring of prescribed treatments and assessment of medical interventions.
The Council is also expected to adopt conclusions on the reflection process on “modern, responsive and sustainable health systems” which is aimed at identifying effective ways of investing in health. The draft conclusions take stock of the progress achieved since June 2011, when the Council initiated this process.
