Synopsis report of the public consultation on the safety of apps and other non-embedded software20 March, 2017
The public consultation on the safety of applications for mobile devices (“apps”) and other non-embedded software was launched in June 2016 as a result of the public consultation on the Green Paper on mHealth in 2014. The latter showed the need to have a special focus on safety aspects of mHealth apps.
This consultation gathered input from various stakeholder groups (78 replies) in particular citizens, industry and public authorities, on their experience related to the safety of apps and other non-embedded software.
According to the respondents, the main category of apps that could pose safety risks are health and wellbeing apps: apps that give health advice, apps upon which a consumer is taking a health or lifestyle-related decision, apps that track and collect data from the user to assess and monitor health-related metrics or apps that interface with electronic health records.
