SSCP - SAFETY AND CLINICAL PERFORMANCE REPORT

OUR TASK

Providing a Safety and Clinical Performance Report (SSCP) has been mandatory for manufacturers since the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) was introduced in 2017. We will support you in meeting the increased level of requirement.

OUR GOAL

We focus on your needs.


Do you need a short report for your class III product according to the current regulations?


Has the Notified Body revealed any deficiencies concerning your documentation?


Do you require additional human resources?

Are you looking for regulatory support concerning the summary for your implant?


Do you want to outsource a regular annual update of the SSCP?


Are you looking for external know-how and independent expertise?

OUR SERVICE

Benefit from our expertise.


We are happy to work in our own SSCP templates. However, to ensure consistency with your QM system, we recommend using your templates and considering all relevant interfaces with your SOPs.

We have developed our templates based on the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2017/745. Based on our experience with the preparation of SSCPs, we have adapted and further developed them to the recommendations of the MDCG-2019-9 guideline.

Whether you need complete solutions from a single source or support with individual tasks – we tailor our SSCP services to your individual needs and processes.

SSCP AT A GLANCE

Due to its high complexity, the establishment of an SSCP is always a team effort. It involves several steps, including reviews, readability testing and validation of the SSCP by the Notified Body.


  • 1

    Project kick-off

    Together we define the strategic approach for the establishment of the SSCP and agree on a time frame. In particular, process interfaces and the relevant deadlines that must be met are taken into account. All necessary information is exchanged.

  • 2

    SSCP for healthcare professionals

    We establish the SSCP for medical professionals based on the technical documentation provided by you. We take into account the requirements of the MDCG 2019-9 guideline and, in particular, other guidelines on stylistic recommendations. This is followed by a review of the draft by your team.

  • 3

    SSCP for patients

    For medical devices that are not exclusively intended for use by medical professionals or when patients will receive an implantation card for implants, we also create an SSCP for patients. In this case a review by medical professionals and a "readability test" by laypersons will take place.

  • 4

    Translation into languages of member states

    We coordinate the necessary translations into the various languages of the member states in which your medical device is to be placed on the market. In doing so, we cooperate with translation agencies of your choice or select a suitable company for you.

  • 5

    Validation of the SSCP by the Notified Body

    The initial SSCP must be validated by your Notified Body. If you wish, we can support you in preparing the documentation and carry out a consistency check with your technical documentation. We also help you to coordinate the activities in case of necessary updates.

  • 6

    Uploading the SSCP in Eudamed

    At this point, unfortunately, we can not help. But you have no work with it either. Uploading the SSCP in Eudamed is the task of the Notified Body. However, we will work with you to ensure that the deadlines are met and that your label (label, IFU) contains the appropriate references to the SSCP in Eudamed.

  • 7

    Annual review of the SSCP

    The nesting of technical documentation content, the disclosure of new data as well as recertification activities require a regular review of the SSCP and if necessary an update. We will support your team in all matters and help you stay on top of things.

Do you have any further requests?


  • Regular SSCP Review

    The SSCP must be reviewed annually. If there is new relevant data on safety and performance, then we will help you to incorporate it.
