EU regulations that allow babies with intellectual disabilities to be given medical certificates for life have been “a joke”, an independent report has concluded.
The EU’s medical certificate system was created in 2014 to allow people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to obtain a health certificate for life.
But the report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said it was “inhumane” to give babies with the condition a life-long certificate, and that it was an unnecessary burden for many parents who had no alternative.
The report also said it showed the EU was “not serious about the future of intellectual disability”.
“The rules are not very well thought out.
“The child will only be able communicate with other children of a certain age, and there will be no communication with people from a different culture.” “
These rules are a joke and inhumane,” said Ola Lekkonen, a member of the OECD’s scientific advisory committee.
“The child will only be able communicate with other children of a certain age, and there will be no communication with people from a different culture.”
The report by OECD researchers also said the system was a “disaster” that would cost countries millions of euros.
“It is a terrible situation,” Dr Lekkanen said.
“Parents are left with no option but to carry their babies, or even put them to sleep.”
But the OECD also recommended that the EU should consider whether children should have access to a life certificate. “
If it is decided that children will be allowed to have life-time certificates, then the system should be based on the concept of co-operative care and parental consent.”
But the OECD also recommended that the EU should consider whether children should have access to a life certificate.
In its latest report, the OECD said that the European Commission should consider the case of children with intellectual disability and whether such children should be given a life, or a long-term, medical certificate.
“To date, there has been no progress in the drafting of rules that would allow the parents of children who have intellectual disabilities the right to have a certificate, including for the purpose of providing for their care, support, and assistance during their illness,” it said.
Dr Likonen said he would be “more than happy” to work with the European Union on the issue.
“I think that we need to work together with the EU on this issue, and also with the American government and the American Medical Association,” he said.
Mr Trump and the US President have previously criticised the EU, and Mr Trump has previously called for the EU to adopt “an economic sanctions regime” against the bloc.
The European Commission said it “takes seriously the recommendations” from the OECD report.
“We are working to address the problems that have been identified by the OECD and to help the Member States to develop a comprehensive and transparent system for the certification of intellectual disabilities,” said a spokesperson for the commission.
