Notified Bodies

Notified Bodies are nationally accredited bodies that examine the conformity evaluation of the production process completed on behalf of the manufacturers and whose correctness is certified according to uniform assessment factors. Manufacturers can refer to a notified body of their choice which has been named because of the relevant procedure and the product category concerned.

The "Zentralstelle der Länder für Gesundheitsschutz bei Arzneimitteln und Medizinprodukten (ZLG)" is responsible for designation and monitoring of the Notified bodies in Germany.
