US president orders review of all pre-emption rules issued in last ten years

This article was originally published in RAJ Devices

Executive Summary

US president Barack Obama wants a review of all federal regulations issued in the last ten years that intend to pre-empt individual state laws, to ascertain whether these were issued with sufficient legal basis1. The review could have major implications for the medical technology industry, which has long favoured “uniform regulations” to increase the certainty of the regulatory process and to avoid facing product liability suits under state laws2.
