This session’s topic: The Performance Evaluation Report (PER)

With the implementation of IVDR requirements, IVD manufacturers have been challenged to align their internal processes and systems to comply with these rigorous regulations. What challenges are you or your team currently facing? Which areas do you need performance evaluation report guidance?

During this 45-minute Q&A session, our President Laurie Mitchell and Principal Medical Writer Dr. Sarah Chavez answered questions on the role of the State-of-the-Art section within the PER, whether using a PER template is right for you including what the notified body expects to see, and the methodology and strategy for PER, PEP, and PMPF plans.

Who should watch this webinar?

Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and teams who develop, write, review or approve Performance Evaluation Reports for EU IVDR submission.

What You Need to Be Compliant

Watch our recent webinar for more performance evaluation report guidance. We provide an overview of the State of the Art section, and explain how it fits into the overall process of writing a successful, IVDR-compliant PER. Additionally, we discuss the importance of readiness assessments and gap analyses. Then we help you identify critical resources, feeder documents, and expertise needed to consider your IVD “state-of-the-art.” Ultimately, knowing what the Notified Body expects to see will help you avoid project delays and discover efficiencies in the SOA development process.

Ultimately, the In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation 2017/746 is making sweeping changes to the EU regulatory requirements for IVD devices. Read our blog post for more on this topic. In it, we introduce some of the major requirements and list some of the important considerations for IVDR 2017/746 compliance.

How to Establish the Competitive Landscape Within the Scientific Validity Report

how to establish the competitive landscape within the scientific validity report with the state of the art search

In this practical presentation, Dr. Sarah Chavez, presents a detailed outline of the State-of-the-Art search within the Performance Evaluation Report (PER). Additionally, she will distinguish between the purpose and scope of the state-of-the-art and the Competitor search. For example, the SLR approach, data screening, and data presentation will be addressed.

You will learn:

  • The importance of the SOA SLR for providing background and general information
  • How to establish acceptance criteria with data
  • How to assess the safety and performance of your IVD with a systematic approach to the Competitor SLR process

Who should watch the recording?

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and teams who develop, write, review or approve Performance Evaluation Reports for EU IVDR submission. Also, anyone interested in learning more about the competitive landscape within the Scientific Validity Report should attend.

Building a Solid Foundation for your PER to Support IVDR Readiness

Watch our recent webinar where we present an overview of the State of the Art section. Namely, we explain how it fits into the overall process of writing a successful, IVDR-compliant Performance Evaluation Report (PER). In addition, a complete readiness assessment and gap analysis will help you identify critical resources, feeder documents, and expertise needed establish your IVD as “state-of-the-art.” Ultimately, knowing what the Notified Body expects to see will help you avoid project delays and discover efficiencies in the SOA development process.

You will learn:

  • The importance of planning and preparation before you even begin to write the SOA
  • The complete outline of the SOA literature review and assessment process to understand “documentation” needs and what the Notified Body may be expecting to see as part of the Scientific Validity Report (SVR)
  • The potential impact  of incorrect/incomplete documents or processes

[FREE WEBINAR] State of the Art: Building a Solid Foundation for your PER to Support IVDR Readiness

Get a copy of the slides from this webinar or click to watch the recording.

In this presentation, we provide an overview of the State of the Art section, and explain how it fits into the overall process of writing a successful, IVDR-compliant Performance Evaluation Report (PER) in a reasonable time frame. A complete readiness assessment and gap analysis will help you identify critical resources, feeder documents, and expertise needed to establish that your IVD may be considered “state-of-the-art.” Ultimately, knowing what the Notified Body expects to see will help you avoid project delays and discover efficiencies in the SOA development process.

Key Takeaways:

  • The importance of planning and preparation before you even begin to actually write the SOA 
  • The complete outline of the SOA literature review and assessment process to understand “documentation” needs and what the Notified Body may be expecting to see as part of the Scientific Validity Report (SVR)
  • The potential impact your PER in case of incorrect/incomplete documents or processes

Who should watch this webinar? 

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who are tasked with the development, writing, review or approval of Performance Evaluation Reports for EU IVDR submission, or anyone interested in learning more about IVDR requirements for PERs.
