European expert recommendations on clinical investigation

and evaluation of high-risk medical devices for children

A new meeting report has been published from Acta Pediatrica.

Several high-risk medical devices for children have become unavailable in the European Union (EU), since requirements and costs for device certification increased markedly due to the EU Medical Device Regulation.

The EU-funded CORE-MD project held a workshop in January 2023 with experts from various child health specialties, representatives of European paediatric associations, a regulatory authority and the European Commission Directorate General Health and Food Safety.

A virtual follow-up meeting took place in March 2023. We developed recommendations for investigation of high-risk medical devices for children building on participants’ expertise and results of a scoping review of clinical trials on high-risk medical devices in children.

Approaches for evaluating and certifying high-risk medical devices for market introduction are proposed.

CORE-MD is a European Union Horizon 2020 project. It reviews methods for evaluating high-risk medical devices in order to translate expert evidence into advice for EU regulators and to recommend an appropriate balance between innovation, safety , and clinical effectiveness.
