Under the Medical Device Directive (MDD), the majority of IVDs are self-declared devices. However, under the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) the majority will require some form of conformity assessment by a Notified Body. The soon-to-be implemented Regulation is drastically different to the current Directive as it imposes new requirements on manufacturers and other economic operators on areas such as conformity, device classification and documentation which impact the entire device life-cycle.
These are but a few of the significant changes to the European legislation applicable to IVDS and, in a highly regulated industry, the stakes are high for failure to comply. Throughout this course you will learn about the revised scope of the IVDR and the impact it will have on your organisation. You will cement this knowledge through case studies and comprehensive learning materials, ensuring you are prepared for, and compliant to, the upcoming changes.
