  In-Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (IVDR) Implementation

      2 Days


A two-day course providing details of the new IVDR which replaces the existing IVDD (In Vitro Device Directive 98/79/EEC). This course is intended for enterprises who already manufacture products against the existing IVDD or whose products are now affected by the introduction of the new IVDR. It can be delivered as either a public or in-company event but is seen as particularly attractive as in-company where the content can be tailored to suit the needs of the organisation.
