Why Should You Attend:

There have been several ongoing changes adopted by the FDA, EU, ISO 13485, Medical Device Audits, and related to medical devices in just the last few years. And in order to understand these changes and adhere to all these regulatory changes is advantageous to all medical device manufacturers involved in the manufacture of class II and class III devices.

The European Union Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) came into effect as of May 26th, 2017. The clock is ticking for current Medical Device manufacturers in the European marketplace to develop and implement strategies to be fully compliant.

Manufacturers of currently approved in vitro diagnostic medical devices will have a transition time of five years, up to 26 May 2022 to meet the requirements of the IVDR. Products already certified by a Notified Body may be placed on the market for further 2 years under some conditions, e.g. the certificate issued under the IVDD is still valid and subject to surveillance by the Notified Body who had issued it and no significant changes to the product are made.

What are the key changes expected in the new IVDR? The actual terms of the proposed regulation are subject to change until final publication of the IVDR in the Official Journal of the European Union. Some of the key changes expected include:

  • Product scope expansion. Expanded scope will cover diagnostic (including Internet-based) services, genetic testing and other tests that provide information about a patient’s predisposition to a specific disease or susceptibility for a medical treatment.
  • Reclassification of devices according to risk. Risk classes will range from Class A for low risk devices to Class D for high risk devices.
  • More rigorous clinical evidence. Manufacturers will need to conduct clinical performance studies and provide evidence of safety and performance according to a device’s assigned risk class.

The new In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) is complex and the changes it embodies are significant. Our white paper serves as a first step for medical device manufacturers in the EU Market to better understand the immediate IVDR implications by:

  • Analyzing the most influential changes and highlighting their implications for regulated medical device companies.
  • Providing practical steps that medical device manufacturers should take as soon as possible to prepare for this substantial change in the European regulatory environment.
