Representative for Medical Product Safety

On 1 January 2017 new laws came into force for operators and users of medical products. In accordance with paragraph 6 of the German Medical Product Operator Regulations (MPBetreibV) a health care institution must appoint a suitable, reliable person with medical, natural science, nursing, pharmaceutical or technical training as its representative for medical product safety. This person performs important tasks for the operator and is the central contact for coordination in-house and externally.
