PIP implant scandal: German firm ordered to pay damages
German firm ordered to pay damages over PIPS  _71104837_implant_afp

Some 400,000 women across the world were fitted with faulty PIP implant

A French court has ordered a German company to pay compensation to hundreds of women who were fitted with defective breast implants.
TUV Rheinland, which awarded EU safety certificates to the French implant manufacturer, "neglected its duties of vigilance", the court said.
PIP (Poly Implant Prothese) was shut down in March 2010 amidst a worldwide health scare.
The company used sub-standard silicone gel, causing many implants to rupture.

PIP implants scandal in numbers

  • More than 300,000 women affected in 65 countries
  • 4,000 reported ruptures
  • PIP exported 80% of its implants, with half going to Latin America
  • 42,000 British, 25,000 Brazilian, 15,000 Colombian, 30,000 French, 16,000 Venezuelan women received PIP implants
  • 15,000 French women have had their PIP implants removed under instruction from the government
  • 5,000 women registered as plaintiffs in the PIP trial
  • 1,700 women registered in the TUV Rheinland trial

  • Q&A: Breast implants health scare
Six implant distributors and 1,700 women had sued TUV Rheinland for 50m euros (£42m), arguing anything but a cursory inspection would have found problems.
The plaintiffs in the civil case will be given an initial payment of 3,000 euros per victim for surgery to have the implants removed.

Jan Spivey, a British woman who received PIP implants as part of reconstructive surgery following breast cancer in 2002, said she was "delighted" with the ruling.

"Of course TUV has some responsibility and should be held to account. They're the organisation that gives the CE certification for safety, and that was what my surgeon relied on when he gave the implants to me.

"Anybody that gives safety certification for a product that is going to make women very sick does have responsibility," she told the BBC's Newshour programme.

It could open the door to many more compensation claims, says the BBC's Christian Fraser in Paris.

TUV Rheinland had won two previous cases in Germany. This was the first such case in France.
The German firm has said it will appeal against the verdict.

Hidden from view
TUV Rheinland awarded PIP - formerly one of the world's leading suppliers of implants - its European safety certificate for 17 years.

The founder of PIP, Jean Claude Mas, is still on trial for aggravated fraud in Marseilles, along with four of his executives.

He revealed during police interviews that he had ordered employees to hide the unauthorised silicone when inspectors visited his factory.

It has since emerged the substandard gel was used in 75% of the implants.

The court heard an employee in charge of quality control had only a cooking diploma - another in charge of the lab had previously trained as a pastry chef, our correspondent says.
A ruling is expected in Jean Claude Mas' case on 10 December.

This is such wonderful news and could possibly open the doors for those in the UK also who were implanted with PIPS.
