On the 28th of January 2014, MedPharmPlast Europe held its 
inaugural meeting in Brussels with the founding members of this new 
EuPC sector group. 
 
The companies participating in this kick-off meeting agreed on the 
importance and need for an EU level sector group specialised in 
plastics for medical devices and packaging, in order to address the 
many challenges faced by the industry. 
 
MedPharmPlast Europe will focus its activities on the following issues: 
 
-Legislation affecting plastics in medical devices and packaging; 
-Participation in the Medical Devices Expert Group of the European 
Commission (MDEG); 
-Coordinating industry actions at EU level based upon the knowledge 
of the MedPharmPlast Europe members on plastics for medical 
devices and packaging; 
-Setting up an advocacy plan in the European Union to defend the 
interest of the sector group membership; 
- EU projects on research and innovation for plastics in medical devices and packaging; 
- Discussion forums (workshops) on innovative topics; 
- Market intelligence; 
 
In the meeting, Mr Thierry Eyrard (Fresenius Medical Care-SMAD General Manager) was appointed as 
the Chairman of MedPharmPlast Europe for the next two years. Mr Eyrard noted: “We started with the 
development of MedPharmPlast Europe three years ago and we are now working together in order to 
face the important challenges. We are speaking now with one voice as an industry. We will work in the 
coming months to analyse problems and propose solutions, setting up a realistic roadmap to solve them. 
For that we would like to count on as many companies from the plastics value chain as possible in order 
to be stronger, joining forces to benefit the plastics medical devices and packaging industry”. 
 
  
EuPC calls all the interested parties in the Medical Devices and Packaging industries to join 
MedPharmPlast Europe in order to create a strong group which can work together to defend the 
interests of the industry.
