Expert Panel in the Medical Device

Call for clinical and other experts to be published later in 2019!
What will be the tasks and activities of the expert panels?
Expert panels will respond to consultations on novel
high-risk devices before they are certified for the EU single
market. The experts will also be involved in other tasks such
as contributing to the development of common specifications
for clinical evaluation of device categories, guidance
documents or standards.
Selected experts will be appointed to expert panels in a range
of relevant fields, such as the cardiovascular system,
orthopaedics, neurology, endocrinology, and other areas,
such as in vitro diagnostic medical devices.
When will the call for experts be launched?
The call for clinical and other experts in the area of
medical devices and in vitro diagnostic devices will be
launched later in 2019 and published in the Official Journal
of the European Commission. Details on expert remuneration
will be provided in the call.
Successful candidates may be appointed for a renewable term
of three years or may be included on a central list of available
experts from which they may be called to support panels.
The new EU regulations on medical devices and in vitro diagnostics came into force in 20171. They stipulate the establishment of expert panels to support the assessment of specific high-risk devices and to contribute to the prospective improvement of the overall framework by advising the Commission, the Medical Device Coordination Group, Member States, Notified Bodies and manufacturers.
How to apply?
Once the call is published, make sure you fulfil all the eligibility criteria. Fill out the online application form, attach
your CV and declaration of interest. 
Your expertise can make a difference to the health and quality of life of patients. If you would like to
contribute to improving medical device assessment
and enjoy working with peers, consider applying!
