IVDR Training

European Regulation 2017/746 related to In Vitro Diagnostic Devices

Course Description

This two-day IVDR training course will provide a detailed overview of the European Regulation 2017/746 related to In Vitro Diagnostic Devices.

IVDR will replace the EU's current Directive on in vitro diagnostic medical devices (98/79/EC). As a European regulation, it will be effective in all EU member states and EFTA states immediately without need to be transferred into the law of respective states, however national laws may be adapted to back up some requirements in more detail.

Manufacturers of currently approved in vitro diagnostic medical devices will have a transition time of five years, up to May 26, 2022 to meet the requirements of the IVDR. Products already certified by a Notified Body may be placed on the market for further 2 years under some conditions, e.g. the certificate issued under the IVDD is still valid and subject to surveillance by the Notified Body who had issued it and no significant changes to the product are made.

Manufacturers of in vitro diagnostic medical devices are well-advised to stay current on amendments to IVDR by training and retraining staff over the next few years. Under the IVDR, all currently approved in vitro diagnostic devices must be recertified in accordance with the new requirements. There are no grandfathering provisions, so it is time to help your organization understand this regulation.
