Synopsis:

CER’s - Compliance to MEDDEV 2.7/1 REV. 4 and the EU MDR 2017/745: Regulatory requirements from the MEDDEV 2.7/1 revision 4 and the EU MDR 2017/745 have increased the challenge of writing Clinical Evaluation Reports (CERs).

Great emphasis is placed on the scientific aspects of the clinical evaluation, the competence and independence of the “evaluators” (section 6.4 and Appendix A11), and the need to make this a living document that must be updated regularly or whenever there is a safety or clinical performance issue. Our CER speaker, Angela Siebeneck, RN, MSN and medical device professional, will provide expert insight from her industry experience working with all elements of CER writing. Angela will address “What is State of the Art and why is it important?”


State of the Art (SOTA) was mentioned four times in MEDDEV 2.7/1 Rev 3, thirty-nine times in MEDDEV 2.7/1 Rev 4 and nine times in the MDR. With the increased scrutiny on Clinical Evaluation Reports additional emphasis has been placed on establishing SOTA. It is important to establish the landscape and ground to support the relevance of the device as a treatment option for the condition treated and establishing the safety and performance. The requirements for searching and constructing the SOTA, as well as specific examples will be reviewed.


PER’s - The Performance Evaluation Report (PER), described in Article 56 of the IVDR, includes three elements: scientific validity, analytical performance, and clinical performance. Our PER speaker, Maria Nyåkern, PhD, will guide us through the compliance requirements and provide her insights on the generation of “sufficient clinical evidence” in a cost-effective manner.
