The grey-haired rockrose”has the reputation to protect against colds and inflammation of the mouth and throat. More recently, it threatens also to be suitable, to grow gray hair manufacturers and distributors of medical devices. Because the Oberverwaltungsgericht (higher administrative court) Munster has pushed to in fact the burden of proof that it is a product a medical product, not a drug, the manufacturers with decision of the March 15, 2010 in a rockrose extract relevant procedures. Tablets and throat solution, which essentially consist of an extract of the grey hairy rockrose and should be used according to the manufacturer’s prevention, as well as the accompanying treatment of colds, viral infections and bacterial infections of the upper respiratory tract were the subject of the procedure.

It rather contented himself with the observation that it is to presentation medicines, so that now lead codified rules of doubt a AMG in 2 paragraph 3 being classified as a medicinal. The OVG blessed from this approach of the VG Cologne. Although find doubt arrangements on products that are to assign clearly the medical product law due to their action, no application.
