Abstract

The LIFE MED project aimed to improve waste management for discarded medical equipment in Italy, to achieve environmental, economic and social benefits. The project’s specific objectives were to implement a new integrated management system for discarded medical equipment; prevent waste production in the medical sector; manage medical waste by means of the specific characterisation of medical Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE); donate medical equipment accompanied by assistance and replacement of parts; replicate the approach in Romania; and organise a stakeholders’ forum (including associations of clinical engineers and biomedical technicians, WEEE and packing consortia, and representatives from the Ministry, the region and the province) to discuss proposals, new procedures and legislative changes.
