CER Brochure
New requirements for your CER
A new version of the European Guideline MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4 was issued in June 2016 affecting all companies that market medical devices in Europe.

The MEDDEV is a guidance document and consequently there is no implementation period. Therefore it is important to start using the new version.

The general principle in performing a clinical evaluation report remains the same. The manufacturer must use clinical data to demonstrate compliance with relevant Essential Requirements. Such data still has to be based on investigations done with the subject device and data from post-market surveillance (PMS) activities and vigilance activities where appropriate.

How do you comply with the new requirements in the rev 4 version of the MEDDEV for your clinical evaluation report? At Qmed Consulting we are always up to date with the latest changes and demands. Let us help you update your CER writing process:
Qmed Consulting: 10 years in business, now transformed to A/S
Qmed Consulting has been in business for 10 years. And what a ride! From one single employee ten years ago to the 18 dedicated people today, both in Denmark and abroad. And with a brand new business developer on board November 1st, we are able to continue further growth of the company.

The anniversary was celebrated with employees, family and friends on the most beautiful day in Copenhagen at The Standard’s Jazz Club, where the activities for 2016-2017 were planned in inspiring surroundings of Copenhagen Harbour, portending a promising future for Qmed Consulting.

The future already started a week later on September 15th, when Qmed Consulting was converted from ApS (Private Limited Company) to A/S (Public Limited Company). After the conversion, the share capital was raised from T.DKK 125 to T.DKK 1.000 and a professional Board was elected.

The Board consists of one company representative Director and CFO Mikael Møller and two board members: Chairman Agnes Friese Skov, Direct Marketing Manager at Oticon, and Vice Chairman Charlotte Bruun Piester, self-employed Management Consultant with more than 20 years of experience within the medical device world – to help increase growth of the company and boost development in current as well as new areas.
