Shotlist BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (SEPTEMBER 26, 2013) (SOCIALISTS AND DEMOCRATS, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT - ACCESS ALL) 1. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE TEST-ACHAT SOCIETY BUILDING (EXTERIOR) 2. MARTINE VAN HECKE (DOCTOR AND COORDINATOR OF THE HEALHCARE TEAM AT TEST-ACHAT) SAYING (FRENCH SPEECH): "There is a real problem of transparency in this sector. The evaluation of these implants isn't communicated on any of the authorities websites. Furthermore we don't have any information concerning the secondary effects which have been detected." 3. CUTAWAY: MARTINE VAN HECKE LOOKING AT IMPLANT SURGERY IMAGES ON HER COMPUTER 4. MARTINE VAN HECKE (DOCTOR AND COORDINATOR OF THE HEALHCARE TEAM AT TEST-ACHAT) SAYING (FRENCH SPEECH): "The body which allows the product on the market has to have a better training, has to be better enforced, people have to be really knowledgeable, and the product has to be looked at. It can't be like a shopping tool and that anybody who wants to have the product on the market go the easiest. For products that are implanted or which dispose of an active ingredient, in the future you will have to go through a real assessment procedure. It won't take longer than before but it will be much more intense when it comes to the checking of the product and therefore the patient safety will be much higher."

CUTAWAY: DAGMAR ROTH-BEHRENDT RISING HER HAND DURING THE VOTES 9. DAGMAR ROTH-BEHRENDT (S&D MEP, DE) SAYING (ENGLISH): "We do not have a centralized procedure on the table, which was my original proposal. But now, we asked that there are specific notified bodies looked at; they get an assignment that they are a specific notified body. It means that they have to have a special training, a special kind of expertise in house and only then, are they allow to assess those products." 10. CUTAWAY: DAGMAR ROTH-BEHRENDT DURING THE VOTES 11. DAGMAR ROTH-BEHRENDT (S&D MEP, DE) SAYING (ENGLISH): "We have medical devices of every kind, catheters, small rubber pieces to put needles, etc. Some are single-use and the others are called multiple-use. At the moment we have all of them. We process without knowing where and how, there are no clear standards in the whole European Union about who is doing what with the products and how it is processed. Some are good, but some are not. And we now say: single-use, you are not allow to reprocess, it is only single use." BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (SEPTEMBER 26, 2013) (SOCIALISTS AND DEMOCRATS, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT - ACCESS ALL) 12.
