Pre-CE clinical investigations

Clinical investigations are clinical studies in human subjects that assess the safety and/or performance of a medical device. Prior to starting a clinical investigation, it is important to assess the scope of the investigation and whether it is needed at all. A pre-CE clinical investigation is often the cornerstone of evidence that proves your medical device is ready to enter the market. Data from the clinical investigation becomes input for your clinical evaluation.

Clinical evaluations

The clinical evaluation, documented in the clinical evaluation report (CER), is the process of collecting, evaluating and analyzing the clinical data for a medical device. The CER is used to assess whether there is sufficient clinical evidence to confirm compliance with regulatory requirements for safety and performance when using the medical device in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Post-market surveillance

Post-market surveillance (PMS) is a regulatory requirement for continuously evaluating the safety and performance of medical devices on the market. A PMS plan is a critical document that describes PMS activities such as your post-market clinical follow-up (PMCF) methodology and activities. A PMCF collects and assesses clinical data about the safety and performance of a marketed medical device in order to update its clinical evaluation.
