German law changes will upgrade surveillance & "seal the cracks"

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Changes to Germany's medical product law, the Medizinproduktegesetz (MPG) coming up in January 2002 will "seal any cracks in the existing regulations". That is the confident view of Hans Georg Will, director of the medical devices department at the ministry of health. Speaking at a special MPG transposition conference last week held by the medical device industry association (BVMed), he said the new law - the second amendment of the MPG - was better targeted and clearer than existing legislation. It will also transpose the two most recent European directives on in vitro diagnostics (IVDs) and medical devices, which incorporated derivatives from human blood or plasma.
