How to verify that medical devices and personal protective equipment can be lawfully placed on the EU market and thus purchased and used - also in the COVID-19 context.

The purpose of the guide is to provide indications to enable interested parties unfamiliar with the regulated sectors of medical devices and personal protective equipment to identify whether a product is legally placed on the EU market and can continue to be made available, purchased and used.
This clarification has proved particularly necessary in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, recent experience indicates the need to pay attention to misleading or falsified documents and counterfeit products.
