Course Description

This Frestedt Learning Center (FLC) course is a 4-hour session designed for new CER writers and team members which will include a basic overview of the “Guidelines on Medical Devices – Clinical Evaluations: A Guide for Manufacturers and Notified Bodies Under Directives 93/42/EEC and 90/385/EEC” (MEDDEV 2.7/1, Rev 4) guideline issued in June 2016. In addition, the upcoming Medical Device Regulations (MDR) related to CERs will be introduced as these will be enforced by all Notified Bodies in 2020.
