Assessment Reports

The Assessment Report is an important component of the information available to the NICE Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC) when developing its provisional and, following consultation, final recommendations on the technology.

NICE medical technologies guidance addresses specific technologies notified to NICE by manufacturers. If selected by the MTAC, the manufacturer is asked to provide evidence to support adoption of the technology. The assessment report includes a summary of the technology and a critique of the sponsor's clinical and economic submission.

The 'case for adoption' recommendations are based on the claimed advantages of introducing the specific technology compared with current management.
