About the Training
Since 2022 completely new rules apply to manufacturers and other economic operators (authorized representatives, importers, distributors) who want to put their in vitro diagnostic medical devices into use and make them available on the market – the long-awaited Regulation (EU) 2017/746 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2017 on In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices or IVDRs for short. After a five-year transition period, the IVDR has replaced the IVDD (In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Directive 98/79 / EC) on 26 May 2022 and applies in all EU Member States and EFTA countries.
This means that economic operators wishing to receive the CE mark for their products or to market their products in Europe encounter a new set of requirements that are generally stricter, more demanding, more complex, and time-consuming. With the IVDR, the European Commission has created a solid, transparent, sustainable, and internationally recognized regulatory framework that will improve the clinical safety, quality and reliability of IVD medical devices and ensure fair market access for manufacturers, healthcare professionals and end-users.
At the seminar, we will present the new requirements of Regulation (EU) 2017/746 which are important for manufacturers, authorized representatives, importers and distributors of in vitro diagnostic medical devices in the European Union, and for professionals involved in quality management systems, including IVD medical devices.
