The Prostheses secretariat plans to send an initial draft February 2018 Prostheses List to sponsors in the second week of January 2018. This will allow time for sponsors to identify any issues early by checking the details of new or amended listings and advising the secretariat about any necessary corrections.

Please note this initial draft will not include any items scheduled for consideration by PLAC at its first meeting in 2018.

The final draft, which will include items considered at the first 2018 PLAC meeting, will be sent out one week prior to the publication date. This will be the final opportunity to check the details of new or amended listings and advise of any necessary corrections.
