Implementation of the In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (IVDR) for CE Marking Training Course

The In Vitro Diagnostic Devices Regulation (IVDR 2017/746) is the legislation detailing the requirements which manufacturers have to meet to place In Vitro diagnostic devices on the market in the European Union.

The Regulation contains detailed requirements that need to be implemented, and will affect all IVD manufacturers, importers, distributors and EU Representatives.

The IVDR focusses on devices to be safe and effective, emphasizing pre-market requirements, conformity assessment, post-market-surveillance (PMS), and traceability.

This course aims to offer guidance on implementation of the requirements stipulated in the IVDR into your business.
