This is a recording at the request of June 2022.

The European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) includes a section dedicated to post-market clinical follow-up (PMCF) stating that this should be an ongoing process. Under the previous regulatory system, the Guidelines, PMCF was considered specific to post-marketing clinical investigations, but the MDR takes a new approach to PMCF, encompassing other activities and labeling them as general and specific PMCF.

This webcast will take a close look at the requirements for general and specific PMCF activities, explain how to document PMCF plans and reports using the MDCG 2020-7 and MDCG 2020-8 templates, and outline when justifications for no PMCF are appropriate.
