Inception Impact Assessment Underlines the Need for Timely Action to Decrease the Reliance on Third Countries for Plasma
The Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) welcomes the European Commission’s publication of the Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) as a necessary step in the ongoing evaluation of the EU legislation on blood, tissues, and cells (BTC). Rightfully, the assessment underlines the need for timely action to decrease Europe’s reliance on third countries for plasma. We appeal to authorities to urgently take the necessary steps to collect more plasma through plasmapheresis in Europe As highlighted by the European Commission, plasmapheresis is a more efficient collection method compared to the collection of recovered plasma.1
