This EUnetHTA 21 deliverable (D7.1) focusses on the guidance for the interaction between HTA experts and Health Technology Developer (HTD) during Joint Clinical Assessments (JCA)/Collaborative Assessments (CA) and Joint Scientific Consultations (JSC).

The objectives of this deliverable are to:

  • Produce a practical guidance for HTA/HTD interaction, by defining objectives and extent of interaction between HTA agencies and HTD for JCA/CA and JSC.
  • Define a process for handling commercially sensitive and academic in-confidence data.  
  • Create a procedure and framework for the factual accuracy check (if decided to continue this as a process step) if HTD have submitted a dossier.  
  • Update the Frequently Asked Questions and procedure manual of JA3 to increase awareness and understanding of the JCA/CA procedures for HTD.  
  • Provide a definition of an incomplete Submission Dossier and outline  a procedure for managing incomplete submissions.  

The public consultation for this specific deliverable is foreseen to take place in the period between 20-07-2022 and 19-08-2022.
