Course Description

This series includes a review of the Clinical/Performance Evaluation Reports (CER/PER) requirements in the EU MDR and IVDR (EU Reg 2017/745 and 746, respectively) and associated guidelines along with a discussion of the CER/PER regulations outside the US. All devices are required to have a CER/PER for products marketed in the EU and globally. Good writing skills and techniques needed to create a CER/PER and to respond to reviewer comments will be explored. This highly interactive program will be based on the included course textbook, and learners will have the opportunity to share their experiences and ask specific questions about CERs and PERs.
