IVDR Economic Operator

View on-demand webinar

For the third episode of this webinar series, we discuss requirements to economic operators introduced by the European In Vitro Regulation EU 2017/746.

Economic operators in the context of the regulation include manufacturers, authorized representatives, importers, and distributors. In this webinar, we will be discussing the requirement for each of those operators but also the responsibilities toward each other. We will discuss the increasing responsibilities and liabilities taken by authorized representative in the compliance of the product, the new reporting and controlling activities assigned to importers and distributors. The role of all economic operators will change with the new regulation and this webinar will help the manufacturer to identify the new relationship to build with each of them and smoothly prepare the transition to EU IVDR.
