The PIP certifier ordered to compensate 1,600 new complainants


Already summoned to compensate thousands of victims, the German certifier of defective PIP breast prostheses was ordered Thursday in France to compensate 1,600 new plaintiffs of 23 nationalities, for a total of at least 8 million euros, announced the association of Pipa victims.

These plaintiffs claimed 6,000 euros in provision for the damage suffered before the commercial court. They obtained 5,000 euros, much more than the 3,000 euros of provisions allocated to the first victims.


TÜV is “fully responsible without limitation or restriction and must quickly compensate all victims without exception,” responded Me Olivier Aumaître, Pipa’s lawyer. In a press release, the certifier, who should appeal, on the other hand “strongly contested this judgment in that it retained the responsibility of the notified body”.

More than 10 years after the discovery of fraud within the Var manufacturer of breast prostheses founded by Jean-Claude Mas, whose death in 2019 put an end to the proceedings concerning PIP, legal proceedings continue against the German certifier, who had never noticed any breaches.
