German state implant registry will not go active before 2023

The implant registry in Germany will go into regular operation in two years at the soonest. This is shown by a current timetable in a response from the federal government to a parliamentary question from the FDP party in the Bundestag. Many details, which should be regulated in a legal ordinance by the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG), are still missing.
As of January 1, 2023, there will be a reporting obligation for breast implants to the registry. This is to apply to hip and knee endoprostheses as of Jan. 1, 2024. The registry for these implants will then go into regular operation.

The Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) estimates one-time costs of 24 million euros over a period of five years to set up registries and offices. Two million euros will be needed to set up a trust center at the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). The ministry puts the annual operating costs at around three million euros.
