Quality First International

An indispensable analysis of Europe’s current guidance on clinical evaluations, MEDDEV 2.7/1, Revision 4

London-based medical device regulatory consultancy Quality First International has published the first extensive handbook on the clinical evaluation guidance document from the European Commission, MEDDEV 2.7/1, Revision 4.

London, 3 October 2018

Haroon Atchia, CEO and co-founder of the London-based medical device regulatory consultancy Quality First International has published a handbook on the European Guidance on clinical evaluations, MEDDEV 2.7/1, Revision 4.

This guide, which is directed in particular at regulatory affairs professionals dealing with European medical device regulations, helps to explain the principles of clinical evaluation, as well as the changes and new requirements introduced by the fourth revision of the MEDDEV guidance. Although MEDDEV 2.7/1, revision 4 is a guide for manufacturers and Notified Bodies under Directives 93/42/EEC and 90/385/EEC, the recommendations contained in the guidance are closely aligned with the new Regulation (EU) 2017/745.

“Expectations about evaluation of clinical data have evolved dramatically. For these reasons, radical improvements were added or elaborated by the most recent revision of the MEDDEV guide. Consequently, it behoves our industry to understand precise status of such guidance, its intricacies and confounders; objectives and application; and its strengths and weaknesses”, states Haroon Atchia.

** For a limited time (if ordered before 31 October 2018), special price £375, plus VAT as applicable **

The handbook may be purchased from Quality First International, price: £399 (plus VAT as applicable), email: marija@qualityfirstint.com to order a copy.
