Clinical evidence plays an important role in the conformity assessment procedure for medical devices. No further approval will be possible in Europe without sufficient clinical data to prove the safety, performance and benefit of a medical device. This seminar will provide you with the basic requirements of the European laws and guidelines for clinical evaluation and their implementation in the context of the conformity assessment procedure for medical devices, covering the entire product life cycle.

That includes the general procedure of a clinical evaluation and the required contents of documents to be prepared, such as the Clinical Evaluation Plan (CEP) and Clinical Evaluation Report (CER). Changes resulting from the Medical Device Regulation (2017/745, MDR) for clinical evaluation are highlighted. In addition, the importance of clinical evaluation in the post-market surveillance (PMS) phase, including clinical follow-up (PMCF) will be discussed. The experience gained in the cooperation with notified bodies can help to meet the requirements more easily and avoid mistakes.
