Advocacy and Public Policy Committee & EU Regulatory Affairs Committee on Medical Devices

Advocacy is taken to include all of the ESC’s external communications, alliances, and relationship management activities.

The overall purpose of the Advocacy Committee is to provide a platform to define priorities and design and implement advocacy activities to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in line with the ESC Strategic Plan.

Within this framework, the EU Regulatory Affairs Committee on Medical Devices is specifically set up to provide expert advice throughout the EU regulatory process to ensure optimal safety and efficacy of CVD interventions.
