EU In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation Overview Training (IVDR 2017/746)

The changes under Europe’s new IVD regulation are significant, including the need for Notified Body involvement, a greatly expanded definition of what is considered an IVD, a new risk-based IVD classification system, increased clinical evidence requirements, new quality system mandates, and more rigorous postmarket scrutiny. IVD manufacturers that conduct business in the EU must start their transition to the new regulation now. This course is a critical first step. In this class, you’ll learn about the new requirements found in the IVDR and their impact on manufacturers. We also offer an IVDR auditor class
