safety and performance measures

This session’s topic: Safety and Performance Measures and Acceptance Criteria

Do you have questions about how to identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation? What are the best strategies for the verification of device safety and performance?

During this 45-minute Q&A session, our President Laurie Mitchell answers questions on how to identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints. In addition she discusses how to demonstrate that S&P endpoints are appropriate and clinically relevant​, as well as how to specify acceptance criteria to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk.

Clearly Defining Measurable Safety and Performance Endpoints

The newest regulations for medical devices, Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 revision 4, set high standards for confirming safety and performance according to the manufacturer’s Instructions for Use. Previously, regulations under the old MDR and MEDDEV were not as demanding. Also, manufacturers are not accustomed to the current systematic process of CER evaluations.  

These relatively new requirements for clinical evaluation extend to manufacturers sending new products into the European market. Additionally, those that are already selling medical devices will have to follow these new requirements. Safety and performance are central components of the evidence-based evaluation process for obtaining and maintaining CE Marking for MDR 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4. Consequently, medical device manufacturers felt the pressure to comply by May 2021.
