CER (Clinical Evaluation Report) Training for EU MDR Compliance

Can't travel? This class is also available virtually.

The days of 10-page clinical evaluation reports are long gone. Today, Notified Bodies expect to see robust clinical data as a key component of your CE Marking technical documentation…even for low-risk devices. The May 2021 implementation of the EU Medical Device Regulation further elevated expectations.

Are you ready?

This multi-day training class will walk you through all aspects of assembling a CER from the ground up as well as improving your existing clinical evaluation to meet new requirements. Using workshops and real-life examples, your instructor will address all facets of clinical data, clinical evidence, and clinical investigations, explaining the requirements for each and detailing all five stages of the clinical evaluation process. You’ll come away with a clear understanding of what is required to ensure that your CER withstands Notified Body scrutiny – and what you need to do to get there.

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Virtual seminars run as 1/2-day sessions. In-person classes run as full-day sessions. See the virtual session daily class times.
