Proposal to move health technology guidance and supervision tasks from Valvira to Fimea

20.5.2019

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health is asking for statements concerning draft legislation aimed at reorganising the guidance and supervision tasks of health technology and to shift the supervision and guidance tasks for health care equipment and products from the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira) to the Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea). The aim of the move is to concentrate the expertise in the field, as well as the expertise connected with the quality and safety of products intended for use in care, and thereby to achieve synergy benefits.

Statements should be submitted by 25 June 2019.
