Performance Evaluation Reports (PER)

Performance Evaluation Report

Every IVD is required to have a Performance Evaluation Report in accordance with the EU In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Regulation 2017/746 (IVDR) (PER). The three pillars of PERs are clinical performance, analytical performance, and scientific validity.

For IVD makers, gathering data to adequately address each pillar must be a top concern. Notified bodies won't work with manufacturers that can't show that they have procedures in place for IVDR compliance because of the pressure and resource constraints they are under.

Current Challenges related to PER

  • Lack of expertise in authoring and updating Performance Evaluation Report

  • Scarcity of qualified writers and evaluators with profound knowledge on In Vitro diagnostics

  • Lack of effective planning to compile and submit the PER’s  to Notified bodies meeting regulatory requirements

  • Lack of management practices aimed at timelines meeting regulatory changes

Clinical Evidence

Process of Preparing Performance Evaluation Report

Stage 1

Identify clinical evidence from:

•Literature search and/or

•Clinical experience and/or

•Clinical performance studies and

•Analytical performance studies

Generate new or additional analytical/ clinical data

No

Is clinical evidence  sufficient to be able to  declare conformity  with relevant ERs?

Yes

Stage 2

Appraisal of individual data sets:

•Suitability

•Contribution of results to demonstration  of performance and safety

Stage 3

Analysis of relevant data:

•Strength of overall evidence

•Conclusion about performance and safety
