The Malta Medicines Authority has been designated as the competent authority for medical devices after these were transferred from the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority.

In a statement, the Malta Medicines Authority said that both entities fall within the portfolio of the Parliamentary Secretary for Consumer Protection within the Tourism Ministry.

Through the transfer, the same framework safeguarding safety, efficacy and quality adopted for the regulation of medicine will be applied to medical devices.
