About the SEMINAR

The European Union’s Regulation on IVD medical devices 2017/746 (IVDR) came into force on 25 May 2017 and is currently in implementation. It will replace Directive 98/79/EC on IVD medical devices (IVDD) after a five years transition period in May 2022.

Manufacturers of new IVD devices and devices currently approved under IVDD will have to comply to IVDR from May 2022 onwards. This means they must absolve a new conformity assessment procedure regarding their quality system and their devices, to CE-mark their devices and place them on the EU market. For products currently certified by a notified body - provided certain conditions are met - the transition period may be extended until 26 May 2024,.

New or stricter requirements of the IVDR will have a significant impact on manufacturers and all other stakeholders and will result in reasonable challenges. Changes affect areas such as classification of IVD devices, conformity assessment procedures, clinical evidence, post market surveillance, distribution line and registration. The biggest impact results from the new classification scheme: the percentage of products requiring a conformity assessment under participation of a notified body will change from less than 20% under IVDD to more than 80% under IVDR.

This seminar will provide you insights into the key regulatory changes of the IVDR, to help you to prepare your organisation and your devices for IVDR compliance.
