Current issues being looked at by the Group include pricing and reimbursement transparency, data protection, medical devices approval and safety, biosimilars and rare diseases. This is in addition to other changes that impact on companies more widely such as competition law, bribery and corruption, tax and patents and other intellectual property.
So that EMIG members can keep up to date with changes that most affect their business Pinsent Masons LLP and Alexander Natz, Secretary-General of EUCOPE have agreed to establish and run a quarterly EU and Legal Issues Special Interest Group. The aim will be to review recent and forthcoming changes and discuss in depth issues where Government consultation is ongoing or where urgent action may be necessary.
Meetings will be held at Pinsent Masons’ offices in the City. Further details including the agenda will be sent out by way of a reminder nearer the time.
