Clinical Evaluation Templates for EU MDR 2017/745
CEP + CER Templates
The 57-page Clinical Evaluation Plan (CEP) Template and the associated 78-page Clinical Evaluation Report (CER) Template contain all the required sections, and follow the European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745-approved organization as recommended by the Medical Device Coordination Group (MDCG) 2020-6 guidelines. The Notified Body (NB) expects these recommendations to be implemented in any CEP and CER for a clinical evaluation of a medical device on the EU market.
Post-Market Clinical Follow-up
The 43-page Post-Market Clinical Follow-up Plan (PMCFP) Template and the associated 43-page Post-Market Clinical Follow-up Report (PMCFR) Template are compliant with EU MDR 2017/745 required content and section order per the MDCG 2020-7 and 2020-8 guidelines. These templates are designed to strategize and document post-market clinical data collection in support of the clinical evaluation of a medical device on the EU market.
LRP + LRR Templates
The 25-page Literature Review Protocol (LRP) Template and the associated 32-page Literature Review Report (LRR) Template are specifically designed as part of the clinical evaluation process to complement the CEP and CER for EU MDR 2017/745-compliant submissions to the NB. In addition, this package includes three MS Excel Literature Assessment Worksheets to collect, select, assess, and appraise the literature in a convenient and organized manner.
These clinical evaluation templates assist manufacturers in the development of CEPs and CERs that are complete, free from ambiguity, well organized, and easy to review. They are straightforward to use, clean and concise, free from notorious errors and formatting issues, and have built-in automated features for fast and efficient generation of comprehensive CEPs and CERs. Clear guidance in each section as well as extensive example texts, (partially filled) tables, and diagrams allow authors to immediately focus on the medical device-specific content, and take off with a flying start.
