Clinical Evaluation

Clinical Evaluation chapter VI of the new Medical Device Regulation 2017/745, article 61 details general safety and performance requirements to be met by all devices under normal conditions for use for the intended purpose of the device.

 

A detailed assessment of clinical data with sufficient clinical evidence pertaining to side-effects and acceptability of the benefit-risk-ratio to verify clinical safety and performance is called Clinical Evaluation. (refer to MEDDEV Clinical Evaluation Procedure)

 

Before obtaining CE Marking in the EU, medical device manufacturers must prove to the competent authority that their device meets the safety and performance standards and hence, the EU MDR necessitates the evaluation of devices. It is required for all medical devices regardless of their classification

 

Who can act as Clinical Evaluator for Medical Devices?

Medical Device Clinical Evaluation

The new Medical Device Regulation MDR 2017/745 all manufacturers has to face the monumental task of updating CER documentation for their entire product portfolio. This task must be completed before they provide technical documentation which includes the CER to Notified Bodies for CE Certification.

 

It is understood from the enquires we receive every day across the Globe, 60% of device manufactures told us they have no strategy in place to remediate gaps in their clinical documentation or so far no process in place for literature search, CER planning, data collection etc., which are the essential elements of medical device CE compliance under the new MDR from May 2021.

 

Either during the MDR transition or new medical device CE Marking application with Notified Bodies there continues to be confusion about these requirements laid down in MDR 207/745 article 61 worrying for manufacturers as it holds up the compliance process.

 

Medical Device Clinical Evaluation Consultants must need cross-platform expertise and in-depth knowledge in MDR Article 61 & MEDDEV 2.7/1 Rev.4 (Download Guidelines

Medical Device Manufacturers Challenges

Here are a few challenges that we have heard from the medical device manufacturers

New MDR Classification

The clinical testing requirement for products earlier exempted, Interpretation of scientific Clinical Data, availability & readiness of CER throughout the year

PMCF & PSUR Compliance Monitoring

Keeping track of annual safety updates and maintaining dynamic data records

Establishing "State of the Art"

Establishing state of the art (SOTA) with an extensive amount of supporting clinical data, the outcome of risk benefit analysis and results of applicable bench testing

Clinical Evaluation Report

Clinical Evaluation Report is not a new requirement for high-risk device manufacturers but after the high-profile scandals a few years back questioned the adequacy of existing criteria, followed by the EU Commission came up with new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) introduced in May 2017 tightened requirements for CERs.

 

To achieve and maintain CE Certification for a medical device as per MDR 2017/745 and authorization for sale in EU territory, every class Is, Im, Ir, IIa, IIb, III medical device must receive technical documentation approval along with CER approval from Notified Body.

 

We assist our clients by preparing CER in line with article 61 and Annex XIV of MDR and MEDDEV 2.7/1 Rev 4

 

Clinical Evaluation Report Writer in short CER Writer must be from biology or any science educational background with expertise in Medical Device regulatory, development, usage on patients or design technology.

Clinical Evaluation - MDR Vs MDD

The requirement to perform Evaluation found in part I of Annex X of Medical Device Directive (MDD) is inadequate with the expectations. Therefore, the EU authorities published a guidance document Meddev 2.7.1 rev 4  Guide for manufacturers and notified bodies.

 

in MDR Clinical Evaluation, the requirements can be found in Article 61 and part A of Annex XIV. Part A is focused on the pre-market phase and is an extension of part I of MDD Annex X. While the evaluation is still less detailed than the current Meddev 2.7/1 rev 4  it states the requirement of (a) CEP (b) Evaluation of clinical data and (c) CER.

Clinical Evaluation Plan

Manufactures those require to demonstrate the safety and performance of a medical device with the help of clinical data, Clinical team must plan a sound method for identification, collection, and analysis of the clinical data with the proper time schedule. Clinical Evaluation Plan (CEP) must include the scope of the CE in relation to device intended use, indication, state of art, etc.
