The ESR welcomes the European Commission proposals to strengthen crisis preparedness at EU level

The European Commission has put forward a set of proposals to ensure stronger preparedness and response during the current COVID19 pandemic and future health crises. On 11 November 2020, the Commission proposed new regulations on serious cross-border threats to health, and to strengthen the mandate of the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) as well as the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

These acts are open to feedback from the public until the 2 February 2021.

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) welcomed these new initiatives and has highlighted, once again, the essential role of medical imaging and healthcare professionals in framing these proposals.
