Never Miss Another CER Deadline

Without Hiring More Staff or Risking Non-Conformity

“There’s just not enough time to satisfy your Notified Body Reviewer…”

If you are a manager or executive responsible for getting your medical devices approved by your Notified Body, then you likely are facing some of these issues regarding your Clinical Evaluation Reports:

  • Excellent Medical Writers are incredibly difficult to hire, train and onboard.

  • Costs of hiring contractors for all writing work are astronomical.

  • Even with an increased staff, deadlines are still being missed.

  • Once CERs are completed and staff is downsized, new staff will need to be hired every few years to update documentation.

EU MDR has created a problem. Companies with multiple products must update their CERs to a new and far stricter standard. It simply takes too much time to update each template, and medical writing staff’s are drowning in work.

Many companies are attempting to hire an army of Medical Writers to fill the gaps in productivity and hit those crucial submission deadlines. Unfortunately everyone who attempts this experiences a few major challenges.
