Full support for the proposal - We need as much help as possible for patients fighting for their lives

The European Commission today (Friday) adopted a proposal to postpone the date of application of the medical devices regulation by one year to 26 May 2021. MEP Peter Liese, EPP spokesperson for health expects a broad majority in favour of the proposal within an urgency procedure in the European Parliament.
"I fully support the proposal presented by the Commission today. Doctors and medical staff are fighting for the lives of patients all over Europe. To do this, they urgently need medical devices, for example ventilators. The companies that manufacture these devices simply do not have time for long, bureaucratic procedures. It is therefore right that the European Commission has now proposed to postpone the more complicated rules of the new Medical Devices Regulation by one year. What we don´t need now is bureaucracy and paperwork, but fast procedures and as much help as possible for patients fighting for their lives," Liese said.
