Requirements of the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) Training Course

The In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation details the requirements which manufacturers have to meet to sell In Vitro Diagnostic devices in the European Union. It replaces the In Vitro Diagnostic Directive. 

This course introduces you to the key requirements of the IVDR. IVDs will now be classified according to their risk using a new rule-based system. The majority of IVDs will be subjected to independent assessment of their conformity to the Regulation by a Notified Body and will require third-party certification for the first time.

The course explores the four risk classifications and the conformity assessment routes for IVDs. It defines the Technical Documentation required, and the product safety and performance expectations, including requirements on clinical evidence, Post-Market Clinical Follow-up (PMCF) and Post-Market Surveillance (PMS). Traceability of devices through the supply chain and product labelling will be reviewed during the course.

Please note: This course does not cover Medical Devices under the Medical Devices regulation (MDR EU2017/745).
