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 also have the opportunity to comment on the preliminary basic reports of HTA reports that are based on suggestions submitted by members of the public. You can find the proposed topics for HTA reports on our website ThemenCheck-Medizin.iqwig.de (in German). On this website, you can ask your questions for research and submit suggestions 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.
You can also find information on current IQWiG commenting procedures on our homepage.
