EU IVDR Auditor Training Class (2017/746)

The new European In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation imposes strict new QMS, performance evaluation, postmarket surveillance, and other requirements on IVD manufacturers. Since many IVD manufacturers will be experincing a European Notified Body audit for the first time in their quest for CE certification, conducting internal IVDR audits is essential. Using a case-study approach, we cover audit planning, IVDR premarket considerations, QMS requirements, performance evalaution reports, labeling, PMS, audit conduct, and more! Not an auditor? Consider our IVDR Overview class instead.
