Medical devices (ICIJ)

The Implant Files survey was conducted by more than 250 journalists in 36 countries in order to monitor medical devices that were insufficiently tested or not tested at all.

Coordinated by the ICIJ (International Consortium of Investigative Journalists), the Implant Files survey monitors the global harm caused by medical devices that were insufficiently tested or not tested at all.

As a result of this survey, the international consortium of journalists has released online the International Medical Devices Database . It explores more than 105,000 safety alerts and notices on medical devices and their links to manufacturers.
