Objectives and achievements of regulations in West Germany
Federal German Medicines legislation has achieved most of its ambitious goals and made the country occupy a leading position in comprehensive and efficient drug regulation.
The new legislation (effective 1978) and its implementation fully comply with European Community rules.
