Fundamentals of the EU IVD Regulation

5-weeks | 1 hour per week

Future dates TBC

Online Academy

The in-vitro diagnostic sector has undergone a regulatory transformation, similar to that seen in medical devices. Under the existing Directive, the majority of IVDs are self-declared devices. However, under the In-Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) they 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 lifecycle.

This 5-week course will inform you of the full revised scope of the IVDR and will highlight the key areas of change from the pre-existing Directive. Once completed you will be better placed to carve out a strategy to manage transition, ensuring your organisation and its product(s) remain compliant. To support you in the learning process you will have access to case studies to illustrate this theory in practice.

If you would like to start the course sooner than advertised simply get in contact with our training consultants by emailing and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.
