In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (IVDR) Guide

Are you prepared for the changes?

The In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (EU) 2017/746 was published in May 2017 and replaces the IVD Directive (IVDD) 98/79/EC which has come under criticism in recent years. The new regulation aims to overcome the current flaws and divergences and further strengthen patient safety via a robust, transparent and sustainable regulatory framework that is ‘fit for purpose’.

LRQA has put together a guide to support you prepare for the changes. The guide is relevant to all IVD manufacturers and it includes:

  • Key changes introduced in IVDR
  • Scope of regulated IVDs
  • Classification Rules
  • Conformity assessment procedures
  • Person responsible for regulatory compliance
  • Increased role of Notified Bodies
  • Timetable for introduction and transition.

Only 20% or so of IVDs in the EU are currently subject to Notified Body approval. This will increase to 80% under the new IVD regulation and will consequently lead to increased approval times.

By taking certain measures, such as developing a customised action plan, will ease the introduction and transition to the new regulation.
