IVDR Classification Rules

View On-Demand Webinar

For the last episode of this webinar series, we discuss the classification rules introduced by the European In Vitro Regulation EU 2017/746.


The new European IVD regulation is replacing the list-based classification system of the European IVD Directive by a rule-based classification. This system, driven by the intended use of a device, is designed to be future-proof and is the base to determine the applicable conformity assessment route and level of information required to demonstrate conformity and prepare post-market activities.


In this webinar, we will present the various rules, provide examples of devices and the rule interpretation. This will be the opportunity for manufacturer to better understand the meaning of each rules and better prepare the transition of their portfolio to the European IVD Regulation.
