During the last quarter of 2004 KEMA Quality B.V., Arnhem, The Netherlands, conducted audits and examinations in accordance with the applied conformity assessment procedures and has determined that the quality system maintained by Current Technology and its ETG Mark 1 (ElectroTrichoGenesis) electric pulse stimulator for the treatment of hair loss comply with the requirements of EC-directive 93/42/EEC and amendments thereto.

"The CE Mark is the gold standard for medical devices in virtually every country in the world outside of the United States," states COO Anthony Harrison. "Our ability to affix the CE Mark to our ETG Mark 1 devices confirms Current Technology's ongoing compliance with a rigorous quality assurance and quality control program."

"Issuance of the CE Mark has particular significance in Asia," states Robert Kramer, CEO of Current Technology. "We are now in a position to commence the final steps required to deliver ETG devices to Malaysia, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and Taiwan.

This milestone further serves to underscore the importance of ongoing negotiations in Australasia. We are presently negotiating distribution agreements for Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Australia. This dynamic part of the world holds significant promise for us in 2005."
