Clinical Evaluation Report – Regulatory Requirements (Medical Device Regulation 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev. 4)

According to the European Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC), a clinical evaluation report (CER) is required for all medical devices of class I to III. The new revision 4 of the current MEDDEV 2.7/1 and the Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745) were published in June 2016 and May 2017, respectively. The alterations made in this revision as well as in the new regulation for medical devices have clearly increased the requirements for the preparation of a CER.

Under the new requirements, a CER should focus not only on the safety and performance of the medical device, but also on the benefits and usability aspects for patients, users and third persons. Furthermore, both the state of the art of a device and the scientific validity of clinical data will be more critically assessed.

Join our seminar in order to expand your knowledge on the key regulatory requirements of the MDR 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 Revision 4. We will show you how to evaluate clinical data as well as how to put the new regulatory requirements into practice. By the end of the course you will be able to successfully and smoothly update and prepare new regulatory compliant CERs.
