|PIP Poly Implant Prothèse: Federal Supreme Court of Germany announces difficult decision for 27.02.2020.
A health insurance company had reimbursed operation costs for 26 women who had PIP breast implants replaced.
The company filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and was liquidated. TÜV Rheinland was auditing the company so that PIP could affix the CE mark, which is a prerequisite for the use of medical products in Germany. In June 2017, the Supreme Court already decided that a woman affected was not entitled to compensation from TÜV Rheinland.
|At the end of the negotiations, the presiding judge R. Pamp questioned whether the EU legislator had done people a favour by regulating medical devices. After all, it´s about products of the highest importance.|
