Knowing where to submit clinical trial results summaries to is the easy part. What becomes difficult is learning the intricacies and transparency requirements of every clinical trial registry globally, including European Database on Medical Devices (EUDAMED). Here is an overview of this registry:

Registry name: European Database on Medical Devices (EUDAMED)

Year established: 2001

Points of interest:

  • EUDAMED is a database that allows users to exchange legal information about the implementation of the European Union (EU) Directives on medical devices between the European Commission’s Enterprise and Industry Directorate General and the competent authorities in EU member states
  • The main objective of the database is to help European authorities monitor the medical device market via information exchange
  • EUDAMED’s legal framework consists of the Medical Devices Directives 90/385/EEC, 93/42/EEC, and 98/79/EC
  • Users can upload, extract, and modify data on the registry
