Why was MedPharmPlast Europe created?

 

The market in plastic medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging is growing and plastic is at the heart of innovation in this market.

The challenges faced by the industry are heavy, including:

 

  • Important and complex changes in the European legislation

 

  • The increasing need to get information through the whole supply chain in an efficient manner

 

  • The lack of effective advocacy for the continued use of plastics in the healthcare sector

 

This makes an organisation like MedPharmPlast Europe, representing the whole value chain from plastics producers to medical devices and

pharmaceutical packaging manufacturers at Euroean level, essential for the industry.
