New system for financing the surveillance of the medical devices market
March 23, 2023
A new system for financing the surveillance of the medical devices market applies from 2023. This system aims to make fees fairer between the different stakeholders in the sector, as each one must pay a fee that is consistent with its turnover and with the level of risk involved in its activity and in the workload it represents for the FAMHP.
Until now, only stakeholders providing medical devices to retailers or end users in Belgium had to pay this fee to the FAMHP. With the new financing system, all actors active in the field of medical devices must file a turnover declaration.
