Register medical devices investigations with CCMO? Online tool offers a solution

From 1 October 2020, CCMO will be the competent authority for clinical investigations involving medical devices. From that date, manufacturers are obliged to notify of certain types of medical device investigations.

This change has now also been incorporated into the free online tool Committee Finder, developed jointly by CCMO and Paul Janssen Futurelab Leiden. The Committee Finder will help you find out which review committee should assess your research and which other bodies should authorise your research. In the case of medical device investigations, an on-screen notification will appear if you also need to report the investigation to CCMO. The statutory assessment period is displayed on screen as well.

Medical devices investigations must be reported to CCMO if they involve obtaining CE marking or extending CE marking indications.
