Brussels / October 27 and 28, 2003                                                                                              Nov 4, 2003

                  Preparation of the Steering Committee SC meeting San Francisco November 2003
                  Status of documents:
                  - information, source, status documents, e.g. on tissue engineering
                  - guidance documents (on best regulatory practice)
                  - implementation documents (recommended for coherent implementation of common
                      regulatory elements).

                  Industry request for score cards led to debate on document status.
                  Score card could be replaced by industry statement if system works or not.
                  NL. DE warned against implementation documents outside the regulatory framework. Europe
                  implemented the vigilance guidance as MEDDEV; this group of documents should be kept per
                  CH, EUROM VI, UK- common forms, AT ditto in the procedures, EUCOMED, FR –
                  recommended for implementation, COCIR – needed by industry and for outside countries, UK –
                  only to simplify procedures, M.F. – JA, CA, AU have already implement GHTF documents. CEC
                  concluded to argue for information and guidance documents.
                  Rapporteur from industry and regulators.
                  Progress sheet for GHTF documents.
                  SC activities to be reviewed.
                  Common data: QS, pre-clinical and clinical, demonstration of conformity with EP, usability,
                  registration of manufacturers and medical devices.
                  Harmonize standards and supporting...
                  Exchange and sharing of data.
                  Promoting projects for these goals: SG 4 – exchange of audit reports, SG 1 – clinical data,
                  registration, design evaluation.

                  European Chair 2004-2006
                  Review of Ottawa rules
                  Implementation of current priorities. i.e. STED.
                  Enhancing patient safety.
                  Meetings of SC and GHTF conference.
                  Membership on SC and SG: rotary participation of EU regulators in SC.
                  Enhancing patient safety – unifying scheme on revised vision for 2004-2006.
                  - designing for patient safety
                  - ensuring the safe use of medical software
                  - handling of new technologies: tissue engineering, pharmacogenetic testing, etc.
                  - global vigilance reporting NCAR, common form, WHO interest in participation.
                  DE: demonstration of efficacy to be added, i.e. safety and performance, to be considered in
                  GHTF conference: June 2006, Lübeck, global conference.
                  Regional conferences as needed and ASEHA, Latin America, China, WHO, Europe.
                  Lübeck was offered by European industry, C.B. did see premises, look interesting.
                  SC meetings:
                  June 04 FR, May 05 Sevilla, ES, November 05 UK, June 06 Lübeck, November 06 Brussels.
                  Members states could make offers e.g. for 05 Sevilla.

                  Study Group Progress reports
                  SG 1 regulatory systems, M.F.: definitions of medical device, principles of classification, STED to
                  become proposed documents, role of standards including IVDs ditto, essential principles including
                  IVDs ditto. Commission received a bible of documents for the SC meeting, being made available
                  via the CIRCA. MDEG supports publication on the web for three month consultation, need for
                  progress sheet reemphasized.
                  SG2 vigilance: reporting of use errors, universal data set already endorsed by MDEG earlier as
                  final document. N 54 adverse event reporting rules compilation of several approved documents.
                  SG 3 quality systems:
                  QMS and risk management, design control and process validation subcontracting draft. QMS and
                  risk management integration: EUROM VI concern about SG 3 and ISO TC 210 developing
                  overlapping (or even contradicting) guidance. Premeeting of European members in SC to explore
                  the status of this document, if preliminary draft or proposed document and then to develop a
                  European position. Design control – cosmetic change over previous final document: document not
                  being available, ergo European position before SC meeting.

Brussels / October 27 and 28, 2003                                                                                              Nov 4, 2003

                  Process validation – ditto.
                  SG 4 auditing: auditing general requirements to be reviewed in light of new ISO 13485:2003
                  QMS standard; new proposed document on regulatory auditing strategy, new work item on audit
                  report. – EU pre-meeting to establish status of documents.

               Reclassification of total joint implants – state of play (info only)
                Update by the Commission; ES document was tabled; CA-only meeting with the Commission is
                planned. Complaint by DE about slow progress. EUCOMED: clarification that industry never
                agreed on the proposal. Meeting in the 2nd half of November 2003, Member States to put forward
                final position at that meeting.

               International relations
                China – state of play
                Meeting with the Commission planned for next week was deferred to next year. Commission has
                forwarded to China. European industry complains on Chinese market access. Invitation for
                preparatory meeting in due time. Medical devices were not yet on the agenda for next week’s

                  Chinese Taipei – state of play
                  EUCOMED is developing a pilot project following exchange of letters between Taipei and CEC
                  for the 15 members states. Request for certification of NB certificates by CA monitoring such NB
                  was turned down by the Commission. EU industry delegation to Taipei under consideration.
                  Chinese Taipei authorities to be invited for March 2004. No need to endorse because Competent
                  Authorities are free to do what they feel competent to do. FIDE: new 2004 regulation requires
                  unjustified information from manufacturers e.g. on work shop and machine plans. NL: ditto: from
                  CAs about their competence. EUCOMED got some positive feedback from Taipei delegation
                  visiting some weeks ago. Chair took silence of this group as concurrence.

               EU-accession countries: workshop on vigilance and market surveillance (Brussels, December
                4-5, 2003)
                Cochaired by Nicolas Pallikaris and Hector Costa. Meeting room facilities at Centre de
                Conférences A. Borschette – rue Froissart – 10-40 Brussels
                December 4 : vigilance, December 5 : market surveillance. Speakers have been identified and will
                be notified this week. Accessing countries can bring three persons with Apex tickets (Paid for
                three) and hotels paid for two because vigilance working group will meet December 3, 2003.
                Plan A: reception at the IT embassy. Q and A session? Reception with industry meeting regulators:
                EUCOMED sponsorship was welcomed by the chair.

               GMDN - EUDAMED progress report
                Translation funding into 10 EU languages is much higher than expected and needs high level
                clearance and might need to be done by priorities. EUDAMED WG Oct 7, 2003: feedback from
                about 11 member states, conclusions available on CIRCA site plus tabeled copy because
                Commission had difficulties with CIRCA access.
                GMDN progress report by M.F. about maintenance agency policy group meeting in London 29
                and 30 September. Quality control issues about maintenance and synchronization of multiple
                language translation. Copyright issues remain as well as user charges. CAs receive free copies but

                to start work November 17, 2003 in Paris for first draft by new year. Subcategory copyrights
                should not be an issue.

               BSE/TSE – reactivation and future work of working group
                Commission has no human resources for reactivation. About 200 medical devices with animal
                tissues. CA to evaluate SER in 12 weeks. EDMA and EUCOMED concerns to the steering
                committee. Commission’s plan for January 2004 considered too late, ergo in November after CA
                meeting invitation by or around Wednesday.

               Progress reports of last Working Groups and Task Forces meetings
               IVD Boarderline

                  Report by J.K. on draft MEDDEV. UK opposed to gen chip examples to exempt military activity.
                  IR: removal of products for research only, application of biocide directive unclear. Document to be

               IVD Annex II
                Report by FR. End 2004 revision of TS? Combination with IVD boarderline? HIV kits to be
                discussed in IVD boarderline for software. Nuclear activation kits for HIV: more time needed. In
                house manufacturing on todays agenda. Majority of CAs not in favour of IVD only MDEG
                meetings. WHO is drafting standard of hepatitis B; bilateral agreement between WHO and
                Commission, meeting 20 Oct. : WHO will not publish without consultation of the Commission;
                Commission to participate in WHO Jan. 2004 meeting. Combination of Annex II and IVD
                boarderline meeting ok.

               NBOG
                Report by S.O.: NBOG work program substantially completed, 3 of 30 work items still pending.
                New work program for January 2004 CA meeting. MBOG annual report 2002 found great interest,
                therefore 2003 report for website presentation planned. NB-MED Chris Jepsen to participate, first
                contact on Wednesday.
                J.K.: NBOG to dissolve itself. S.O.: NBOG work items endorsed by CA group. EUCOMED
                enthusiastic about NBOG work. S.O.: NB-MED to be invited to speak for NBs and industry.
                NBOG to work with NB-MED and industry.

               MSOG
                Report by PT representative: class I, annex VII and VIII, inspection, criteria for distributors,
                miracel cure products addressed. Opening of the MSOG meeting for informal NB and industry
                contacts to be discussed with chair Hector Costa when present. Document on custom made devices
                and dentistry is being addressed.

                  Meeting on 16 Oct. 2003, supposedly the last one. EUCOMED drafted proposal for pilot on class
                  III devices including IVDs. Proposal to be redrafted for five examples for December 3, 2003
                  meeting. English performed language.

                  Workshop EU – accession countries Budapest July 2003
                  Good meeting. Ten of 13 accession countries attended, one of the three missing was not funded.

                  Tooth whitener
                  Ruling of a lower court in DE in opposition of high court ruling in the UK;
                  DE: MD, UK: cosmetics. Consumer protection might apply when a product is not considered to
                  treat illness: Mr. Cavallo, CEC cosmetic directive. Peroxide content links tooth whitener to
                  cosmetic directive. If content above 6 % situation becomes unclear. UK position: concentration
                  secondary issue, principal intended purpose, i.e. cosmetic to bleech teeth, complicated also from
                  obelescence (?) claim. Therefore banned from the UK market per house court ruling.
                  DE CA position: also not an MD but more a cosmetic product (below 6%), above unclear;
                  therefore unhappy about DE court ruling, based on weakness in MD regulation. Court followed the
                  argument that patients with black or bad teeth are under ‘leidensdruck’, i.e. suffering.
                  Amendments of MPG considered but difficult under DE court ruling. Some relief because
                  normally only applied under the direction of a dentist. PT: even 40 % products on the market, but
                  exclusively used by dentists. NL: CE marked = cosmetic, high concentration = pharmaceutical raw
                  material; products banned.
                  SE court case: legal procedure to apply CE mark was legally correct in DE.
                  BE: agrees with UK position.
                  IR: cosmetic products, recently MD certificate removed, planning to take CE marked products
                  from the market.
                  HU: not medical device, share UK position.
                  IT: higher than 6 % only for professional use.
                  FR: below 6 % cosmetic, above product safety directive could apply.
                  FIDE: cosmetic under 3 %, up to 15 % for home bleeching without danger of teeth flesh. Up to 40
                  % only for professional use with black teeth opened by the dentist. Dentist can mix it himself,

Brussels / October 27 and 28, 2003                                                                                              Nov 4, 2003

                  without control; buy on ebay without control; buy it under the counter, e.g. in UK, without
                  control; or: class IIa MD as in DE with control.
                  EUCOMED: customer safety for products available freely or used by professional.
                  DE: risk control is covered; this group does not consider it MD, but court ruled otherwise.
                  Commission should bring manufacturer to court. Chair: this group cannot decide on other
                  denomination of a product. Mr. Cavallo: 0,1 % max. H2O2 concentration per cosmetic directive
                  (actually 0,3 %), higher is illegal; not lawful unless it is proved that it is safe.
                  EUROMCONTACT: cosmetic directive revision to cover eyes? If so contact lenses to change eye
                  colour to be included? Answer: do not know.
                  Chair: this group does not consider tooth whitener as medical devices regardless of H 2O2
                  FIDE: companies follow MDD with class IIa in line with social responsibilities, pity if this would
                  be changed again. Ergo industry and MDEG disagree.

               Tissue engineering WG – progress reports
                Didier Bouis, CEC: March 2004 target for Council presentation in March / April 2004. 113
                companies in EU, 54 as core business. Products to come to the market in 2006, e.g. arteries,
                kidneys, livers, small companies, only a few with more than 100 employees, 15-20 the average.
                Bioengineering companies, competing with conventional treatment, but improve life quality;
                reimbursement issues; business model mixture of pharmaceutical and medical industry; high R&D
                cost. No EU regulation. UK, DE, FR, ES priority research funding; ethical issues in procurement
                e.g. embrional stammcells, trained personnel needed.
                Three stamms of regulations: tissue banking directive, medicinal products 2001/83/EC; tissue
                Scope and definition: main characteristics is the regeneration of tissues for replacement of …,
                market authorization, centralized procedure preferred, EMEA will have to adapt and set up
                committee for tissue engineering.
                Potential market: 100 to 300 bio Euro market, similar to MD.
                Manufacturing license.
                SE: why old approach, not new approach? – non convincing answer. January 2004 all actors to be
                invited under Commissioner Likainen. Efficacy is not being used because better performance over
                existing products is too difficult to demonstrate, per AT querry. Most companies are located in the
                US, how can they be inspected in the US or JP? via EMEA to be decided …

               Competent Authority Meeting (Rome, October 23-24)
                Brief report by the chair: various topics, e.g. reducing WGs and Task Forces, GHTF and oncoming
                chair, 12 and 13 Jan 2004, meeting with CAs GHTF SC members …

               Latex
                Document was finalized in 2002 and circulated. To be put on the Commission website: UK in
                support and general silence considered approval. Ms. Howes to assign number because chair does
                not know the indexing of MEDDEV documents.

               Electronic labelling – industry position paper
                Presentation by B.O., EDMA. Scope for devices for professional use only. Reluctance by CAs to
                accept proposal e.g. as MEDDEV. Issue becomes even more pressing with accessing countries in
                May 2004.
                Chair: if information is available on paper in all EU languages upon request electronic instruction
                is acceptable. NL to specify its objections. 14 member states might agree with proposal. DE has
                formal objection per NL. DE is not against but cannot agree to present proposal, needs to be
                evaluated. BE would accept CD-ROM where per definitionem a computer has to be used.
                EUCOMED proposes amendment of the directive to allow CD-ROM, internet, to allow for
                regulatory stability.

                  D.P.: Handling the distribution is more expensive than the device. Wish to change the directives,
                  not all languages required on the device itself. Ask for first solution in electronic way, e.g. with
                  EDMA: facility security – server quality , certification as state of the art, like homebanking
                  -       external provider needed, e.g.
                  -       file safety via PDF e.g., with relevant safety parameters

                  -         users require already electronic versions
                  -         only for professional use!

                REACH: (registration, evaluation, authorization of chemicals)
                 The DG Environment plans to draw all existing chemical directives into one. The proposal is the
                 REACH Directive with about 1200 pages. Years before the discussion run between the
                 Commission and chemical industries. The down stream users (the users of the chemicals like
                 IVD’s dental material and others) had in the first draft the same requirements like the producers of
                 the chemicals. With the new draft (Oct. 2003) the requirements decreased somewhat to the safety
                 data sheet (SDS), but are still to high for MD. EDAMA, EUCOMED and FIDE asked the
                 Commission for support to exclude MD from the REACH directive.
