Control for medical equipment coming into Albania is set to be strengthened.

The Ministry of Health has introduced a draft that provides for the registration of medical equipment in customs preventing them from entering the market without registration.

Minister Ogerta Manastirliu emphasized, that for the first time, the law now stipulates the reimbursements for medical equipment.

Noting that about 6,000 medical devices or groups of medical devices were registered in the country, the Health Minister stressed before the commission that measures would be taken against any subject that violates the law.
