Submitting comments on IQWiG's assessments
You can comment on intermediate stages of our reports and HTA reports and point out further aspects or missing data. A public commenting procedure (= hearing) is conducted after publication of the following documents:
- report plans and preliminary reports of (final) reports
- preliminary basic reports of HTA reports at ThemenCheck Medizin
Further opportunities to submit comments
You can find topics currently suggested for HTA reports on our website ThemenCheck-Medizin.iqwig.de (in German). On this website, you can ask your questions for research and suggest topics for assessments of examination and treatment methods.
Commenting procedures are also conducted for early benefit assessments of drugs pursuant to AMNOG (dossier assessments), for assessments of the potential of non-drug interventions, and for assessments pursuant to §137h SGB V. However, these are not conducted by IQWiG, but by the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA). The G-BA’s website provides information on these commenting procedures for early benefit assessments of drugs, for assessments of the potential and testing of non-drug interventions, and for assessments according to §137h.
