EDMA, Eucomed Join Together to Establish Industry Federation

Posted 18 January 2012 | By Alexander Gaffney, RAC 

European medical technology associations Eucomed and the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA) are forming an umbrella federation that combines their two memberships in to a united front.

The move "aims to enhance the recognition of their joint membership" in Europe in order to "address common issues of interest and provide stakeholders with a comprehensive view on the latest technological advances and value-based innovations," the companies said in a press release.

Eucomed is composed of 25 national industry associations and 62 corporate members, while EDMA has a membership of 22 national industry associations and more than 500 corporate members. Many of the companies and associations that make up EDMA and Eucomed are members of both organizations.

The new umbrella organization will be led by a joint chief executive, while the two organizations will remain as separate legal entities.
