Danish tell manufacturers to label in Danish:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The Danish authorities are tightening up on the requirement for medical device labelling to be in Danish. Until recently, medical professionals, all educated in English, seem to have accepted labelling in English. But the recent case of a nurse bringing the authorities' attention to a device bearing labelled and instructions for use in five languages - but excluding Danish - is resulting in stricter enforcement of executive order of medical devices, which requires labelling to be in Danish. Any devices found to contravene the order could be removed from the market.
