New changes introduced by EN ISO 14155:2020 in clinical investigations with medical devices

The ISO 14155:2020 (Clinical investigation of medical devices for human subjects – Good Clinical Practice) is the third edition of this standard of reference for the design, conduct, recording, and reporting of medical device clinical studies. It provides guidance to manufacturers and clinical research professionals on how to implement Good Clinical Practice (GCP) for pre and post-market clinical investigations designed to determine the safety and performance of a medical device. This session will focus on the new requirements introduced by the ISO 14155:2020, summarizing the differences with the prior version and putting in the context of the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745).
