About us

The PVCMed Alliance represents all parts of the PVC medical industry chain, namely resin & plasticiser producers and PVC converters. Our mission is to proactively engage in PVC and healthcare related debates.

The aim is to provide a focal point for communication with all involved stakeholders—healthcare professionals and managers, medical device companies, regulators and the general public—about PVC-based healthcare applications.

We believe in honest dialogue about these products’ fundamental role in ensuring the quality, safety and cost-efficiency of healthcare, while being environmentally responsible.
