Clinical Evaluation Report (CER)
Although the new Medical Device Regulation in the EU is almost officially approved, MEDDEV 2.7/1 has already been updated according to the expected requirements. Per 29 June 2016, the updated MEDDEV has been put into practice without transition period, and Notified Bodies therefore already implement this in their approval process. That means that all devices (from class I to III), whether they are new or already on the market for a long time, are required to have up-to-date CERs. Note here that MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev. 4 requires evaluators to have knowledge of research methodology, information management, regulatory requirements, medical writing ánd minimum 5-10 years experience in the relevant field.
