Lohmann & Rauscher International GmbH & Co. KG v BIOS Medical Services GmbH

European Union – Freedom of movement. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling deciding that arts 1(2)(f) and 11 of Council Directive (EEC) 93/42, as amended, should be interpreted as not requiring a parallel importer of a medical device, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, which bore a CE marking and which had been subjected to a conformity assessment within the meaning of that art 11, to carry out a further assessment designed to certify the conformity of the information allowing its identification which that parallel importer added to the labelling of that device with a view to that device being placed on the market of the member state of importation.
