Public consultations enable the HPRA to identify the needs and expectations of stakeholders so that we may incorporate their views into the way our services are planned and delivered.

Current Consultations

  • The European Commission has launched a stakeholder consultation on the EU legislation on blood, tissues and cells. Further details on this consultation details are available on our Regulatory News section


  • The HPRA has recently undertaken a public consultation on Medical Devices Distributor Guidance. The consultation period has now ended. A response document on the outcome of the consultation will be published in due course.

All response document will provide a general overview of the comments received and the changes made to the proposals as a result.

Consultations comply with government policy, as described in the document ‘Reaching out: Guidelines on Consultation for Public Sector Bodies’.
