Since January 2, 2019, DIMDI changed the price model for database searches. Quotations at a charge will now exclusively be possible via weekly or annual flat fees. By ordering a flat fee offer, you have access to the public DIMDI databases.

You can book the flat fees via our new online system. Extensions and additional bookings of flat fees are also possible here.

Access to the databases is possible immediately after a successful purchase of a flat fee.

You can pay by credit card, Giropay or by invoice.

Database descriptions

The databases at DIMDI cover the areas of drugs and medical devices. The Drug Information System (AMIS) is updated and partly attended to by the federal authorities competent for drug approval, BfArM, BVL and PEI. The public medical devices databases contain information on notifications of the first placement of medical devices and in vitro diagnostics on the market (according to § 25 MPG - German Medical Devices Act).
