The regulatory medical writer needs to possess
basic abilities and proper understanding of the
critical information about important regulatory
checks and must be able to develop and present
contents that conform to the regulatory
requirements relating to medical devices. The
regulatory medical writers job is not all about
producing and writing contents but also include
good project management and presentation skills.
The medical device writer must have a complete
knowledge regarding safety and efficacy of the
medical devices, precision, and validity of
measurement devices and sensitivity and
specificity aspects while writing about
diagnostic equipment. Devices undergo continuous
and rapid innovation leading to shorter
life-cycle for medical devices. Thus the medical
device writers must continually update the
subject knowledge and various regulatory
guidelines that control the usage of medical
devices.
A European Consensus Approach - Writing For
Medical Devices The requirements for medical
writing are witnessing continuous growth
influenced in good portion by the mounting
government scrutiny and regulatory controls of
companies manufacturing and marketing medical
devices.

European Regulatory Guidelines European
Commission for Health and Consumers has
established regulatory guidelines for medical
devices to be followed by the manufacturers of
medical devices and other associated agencies in
the marketing of such devices. European
regulatory affairs have drafted these guidelines
through an intensive consultation with able
bodies, commission services, industry agencies
and other associated bodies. The European
guidelines on medical devices provide
comprehensive information relating to the
clinical investigation, which is conducted to
evaluate the performance and safety standards of
the medical device. European medical devices
regulatory document MEDDEV 2.7.1 comprise certain
annexure that provides complete details and
description of the various regulatory aspects
involved in the manufacturing of medical devices.
Important descriptions in the European guidelines
on medical device include
  • Nature and objectives of Clinical investigation
  • Scope and Need assessment for clinical
    investigation
  • General principles clinical investigation plan
  • Ethical considerations for clinical investigation
  • Clinical evidence and Clinical investigation plan
  • Clinical evaluation and safety standards
  • Conformity assessment
  • Endpoint indicators
  • Residual Risk and Risk management policies
  • Relevant legal and regulatory requirements
  • The European regulatory guidelines on medical
    devices provide complete explanation of clinical
    data requirements, study objectives, statistical
    considerations that can significant influence on
    the clinical performance, safety, adverse side
    effects and various risks recognized in the risk
    management process.
  • Writing for medical devices should take all these
    aspects stated in the European Commission
    guidelines into consideration and ensure
    developed contents have complete confirmation of
    these guidelines. Thus, Regulatory writers need
    to hone the essential skills, gain sufficient
    regulatory knowledge and experience at every step
    from medical device prototype development and
    submission process to excel in the high
    specialized field of the medical regulatory
    writing of medical devices.
