Submitting comments on IQWiG's assessments
You can comment on intermediate stages of our assessments and point out further aspects or missing data. A public commenting procedure (= hearing) is conducted after publication of the following documents:
- report plans
- preliminary reports
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 submit 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 (see links below).
You can find more information on current IQWiG commenting procedures on the homepage of our website and via the German-language IQWiG information service, which you can subscribe to free of charge and in relation to specific projects.
