Joint Action on Market Surveillance of Medical Devices
On 19 October 2016, at the 39th meeting of the Competent Authorities for Medical Devices in Bratislava, Slovakia, MHRA officially launched the Joint Action in Market Surveillance of Medical Devices (JAMS).
The project aims to reinforce the market surveillance system for medical devices by improving the coordination of activities by all Member States of the European Union, and ensuring adequate communications and cooperation. These are crucial for success and effectiveness of the market surveillance in the field of medical devices. The Joint Action will be implemented through five work packages:
- Coordination (MHRA, UK)
- Dissemination (MHRA, UK)
- Evaluation (MHRA, UK)
- Manufacturers’ inspections (ANSM, France and HPRA, Ireland)
- Clinical process and resource development (HPRA, Ireland)
