ABSTRACT
The article announces the decision of the European Parliament and the council of ministers to approve stricter rules for the use of potentially toxic materials in medical devices such as surgical equipment or implants. Under the agreement, medical devices that include substances considered to be carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic will have to be labelled as such. This ruling is expected to have a significant impact on the use of phthalates.
