Medication and medical device criminal law


The provisions for crimes related to medication law can be found in the Medicines Act (Arzneimittelgesetz, AMG), which regulates the handling of medicinal products and also contains criminal provisions. The Medical Devices Act (MPG), regulates the requirements for medical devices and thus ensures the safety and performance of medical devices as well as the health protection of patients, users and third parties.


This area of law is subject to very strict regulation and thus to the watchful eye of the authorities. Violations can have criminal and regulatory consequences. In this respect, it is important to argue with the competent authorities and courts.


Our range of services includes:

  • Development of compliance systems to ensure compliance with national and European law;
  • Identification of risk areas, in particular with regard to product safety, product recall and quality management;
  • Examination of administrative and regulatory issues relating to medical products and medical devices;
  • Advice on dealing with authorities, in particular with regard to fines;
  • Conflict resolution and criminal defence and representation in administrative court proceedings.
