Clinical Evaluation and Investigation of Medical Devices

A new approach following the European Regulation MDR 2017/745


26-27 May 2020





Clinical Evaluation and Investigation of Medical Devices

The collection of clinical data in view of a Clinical Evaluation Report and its periodic update have become more and more important. The publication of the MedDev 2.7.1 Rev.4 and, even more, the new European Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 compel medical device manufactures to review the methodology in use for their Clinical Evaluation Reports and to present clinical data even for devices that would otherwise be evaluated according to data in the literature.
The conduction of clinical studies is essential prior to placing a device on the market that is innovative or of a high risk class. It is also essential for devices that have been on the market for long, but that do not have systematically collected clinical data.
In this context, Notified Bodies have become more demanding in defining the criteria for accepting clinical evidence, especially for medical devices with high risk for patients.
In order to comply with the requirements contained in the Directive and in the  Regulations, manufacturers need to prepare a clinical validation plan for their products that does not only rely on the collection of available bibliography, but that also provide for the collection of clinical data through clinical studies, clinical investigations and pre- and post-market trials.
