Newsletter 1/21

Dear Newsletter readers,

while the Zero Pollution Action Plan of the European Commission is discussed at the European Green Week, I am pleased to present you the latest updates about the use of mercury fillings in dentistry.

In this issue you will find news from the Minamata Convention, the European Commission, the Medical Devices Regulation, the FDA in the US, National Action Plans, as well as a promising campaign in view of the federal elections in Germany this September.

It's time to turn the tide for the "brown coal of dentistry".

Yours sincerely,

Florian Schulze
