Our SSCP process

We have developed a successful process to ensure the production of high quality EU MDR compliant SSCPs & readability reports.

  1. Initiation

    We start by allocating you a dedicated medical writing / regulatory team of subject matter experts with clinical experience in your device's field of use.

  2. Input documents review

    The team will conduct an extensive review of all relevant input documents (e.g. CERs, Risk Management documents, PSURs, & IFUs) shared through a confidential & secure IT system.

  3. Framework generation

    The team will produce an SSCP report framework appropriate to the subject device including, where relevant, a patient-specific section and readability protocol.

  4. SSCP writing

    Lead medical writers will produce a 9-section SSCP along with patient specific SSCP and readability test protocol (if relevant) using a proven structure, collating device specific information from the input documents.

  5. Client draft review

    The draft will be submitted for review at your pace and capacity. A review call is then held, feedback collated and adjustments made.

  6. Start readbility test

    After your approval, the readability test starts and the results are analysed as they come in.

  7. Readability optimisation

    Following the readability test, if any adjustments become necessary we will make recommendations for readability optimisation.

  8. Finalised reports

    The result is an MDR-compliant SSCP along with readability test report (if relevant) meeting all regulatory requirements and ready for Notified Body review and EUDAMED submission.

  9. Post-submission

    We then provide Notified Body review support, standing 100% by our work and giving you complete peace of mind.

  10. Outcome

    Our goal is full approval of your devices. Get in touch with our team for a free, confidential & no obligation discussion.

SSCP in context

SSCP is an entirely new requirement under the EU MDR that must be produced in relation to implantable and class III medical devices, except custom-made or investigational devices.

The main objective of the SSCP is to summarise clinical data and other information concerning the safety and clinical effectiveness of the medical device and to make it accessible to the general public in an appropriate form. It is written specifically for medical device end users, including both healthcare professionals and, if applicable, patients.

Since SSCP targets both audiences with varying degrees of expertise, it demands excellent technical writing abilities. To ensure that the patient-targeted SSCP is suitable for its intended audience, it is necessary to conduct a readability test.

The challenge

Being an entirely new requirement under the MDR, SSCPs are a source of potential confusion and uncertainty amongst medical device manufacturers and regulators alike.

Furthermore, because an SSCP may need to include sections for different audiences (laypersons and clinicians), uncertainty over content is compounded by questions over styling and use of language.

SSCP success relies on the skill of the medical writer, implementation of an appropriate framework and high quality input documents.

Why a well-written CER is vital to the SSCP process

The information presented in the SSCP should be sourced from the device's technical documents, known as input documents. A well-written CER is the kernel of a successful SSCP.

Requirements include:

  • Developing a well-structured CER structure/framework
  • Performing an extensive & systematic literature review for SOTA & subject device
  • Conducting an objective appraisal of identified evidence
  • Segregating relevant safety & performance benchmarks from the appraisals
  • Conducting an analysis comparing evidence on subject device with benchmarks
  • Carefully formulating conclusions & arguments derived from the subject device's clinical evidence

The right strategy demands thorough knowledge of the clinical field of the subject device and expertise in working with clinical evidence.

Our team of skilled medical writers have years of clinical and regulatory experience along with deep knowledge of the EU MDR.
