IVD Directive (IVDD) to IVD Regulation (IVDR) Transition Training Course

There are significant changes in the European legislation applicable to IVDs. The IVDR (In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation) (EU 2017/746) has replaced the IVD Directive (98/79/EC), and will impose new requirements on manufacturers and other Economic Operators.

This long awaited text brings a number of significant changes to the regulatory requirements for IVD manufacturers, addressing the challenges posed by the IVD Directive. The changes include a new rule-based classification system, increased scrutiny of technical documentation, and improved traceability of devices through the supply chain.

Our one day training course has been designed to introduce IVD manufacturers and other Economic Operators in the supply chain to the key changes to requirements for CE marking following the publication of the new IVD Regulation (IVDR).
